  1. Suzanne and I have know each other for so many years of the time she was married to my brother William, we both had a good life together and had lot of fun shopping, going out to eat. I know now she resting in peace with no pain and worry, my heart and prayers, go out to the family. May God give you comfort at the time you have to say good-bye. She will be missed and I will miss the phone calls and remembering my last birthday with her and Ronnie. God Bless You All

  2. Suzanne was a wonderful sister. Even though we didn’t have the opportunity to grow up together I always enjoyed spending time with her and her family. It was so good to be able to give her away at her wedding. Our prayers for hope and encouragement are for Ronnie and my wonderful niece and nephews and friends of the family. We will miss her now but a time is coming when we will be together for ever. God bless you and we love you all very much.
