Deepest sympathy to Suzanne's family.  Prayers for your sorrowful hearts as you travel this difficult road of grief.  Suzanne was a sweet, caring person and was always so very kind to me.  May God hold you all closely in His loving arms and comfort your hurting hearts.

This is such sad news. Suzanne and I had so much fun in high school! She was always game and ready for adventure. I loved her positive attitude. My true sympathy goes out to her family for this incredible loss.
