Susan and I had many fun adventures together. She introduced me to my future husband. also her brother-in-law. We double dated and spent many nights watching Carolina ball. I will always love her for that. Plus, she gave us our wonderful two nieces and nephew.
Many years ago my daughter Christine, who was in 3rd grade at the time had to be taken to the ER for a badly broken arm. Susan was working that night and was the calm in our strom. She çomforted us, checked on us while Christine was in surgery and got answers for us when we were wondering why things were taking so long. My husband and I will never forget what she did for us that night. I will always remember Susan and the love she showed us that night. She will be missed.
Susan and I were the best of friends. She always called me and talked two hours at a time. She was like no other friend to me. We both started having health problems and we still keep calling up until the end. I’m so sad but I know the cancer you had would have taken you out slowly so I will have to be glad it didn’t go that way . I’ll miss you a lot until I see you again. Love ya,. Douglas Brown
SUSAN WILL TRULY BE MISSED, I HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH HER AT THE HOSPITAL, SHE ALWAYS MADE ME SMILE, AND SUCH A FUNNY PERSON, WE WERE AT THE BEACH ONE YEAR AT THE SAME TIME, AND SHE WALKED UP TO ME ON THE PIER AT CHERRY GROVE, AND SAID NEED SOME HELP FISHING, AND SHE STARTED FISHING LIKE A PRO WITH MY HUSBAND. MANY PRAYERS FOR HER FAMILY FOR COMFORT AND PEACE.
