Sorry for the lose of Susie. She was a lot of fun. I got to know her thru Dorie and Carolyn. Use to bowl with her and we all took a trip to Aruba me, Dorie & Nutter. She was always a happy person. Even though I have not seen her in many years I have often thought of her. Where she was and how was she doing. She’ll be missed by many. Prayers and comfort for her family.

I’m so sorry to read of your loss. While there is nothing that can take the sting of death away, may you find comfort in God’s promise to one day, “swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and to “wipe away the tears from all faces,” (Revelation 21:4) And even more comforting to know, God will have “all those in the memorial tombs come out” free of sickness, old age and pain. (John 5:28,29) May these scriptures help you cope until that time comes. For more information, type the following link into your browser: tinyurl.com/mezwv23.
