I haven't seen Susie in a long time and I'm sorry for that. Mainly because Susie is one of those people that everyone loved to be around. She was always happy. A very loving, giving, caring person. Her eyes always had that beautiful blue sparkle that went with that beautiful smile of hers. I will forever have Susie's smile in my memory as my reminder to always try to see the best in everything and everyone. Susie did, so can I. We will miss you Susie.
