    This broke my heart…I love you my dear friend…we lived right around the corner from each other and spent so much of our young lives together…you and your sister Debbie were so much fun. Your Mom was my 2nd Mom and my Mom was yours…I will always remember those days with joy!

    Oh, Susi, What a shock! I heard about your passing from your cousin, Bill and am so grateful to him for letting me know. Susi and I have been best friends since the 6th grade way back at Northwood Jr. High and we hung around together for years until she and her Mom moved to Antioch, IL and even then we always made a way to either stay in touch or visit each other when we could. She really was the most caring, sweet and dear person I ever knew! I made many friends over those years but none like Susi! I knew her Mom and Dad and even her sister who we cared for when she was home visiting and Susi was so kind and so loving towards Debbie it was hard to remember just how many difficulties Debbie had during her lifetime! We never cared where we went with her, it was just a fun afternoon with Debbie with us doing what Debbie did best, Laugh! When Susi moved to Florida, I moved to the Northwoods of Wisconsin, 8 miles from the UP border and we both knew we'd most likely never see each other again but we always did keep up with Christmas cards and it kept us both up to date with what was going on in each other's life. I knew her love for Butch was enormous and Sarah was a gift that she prayed for and when she gave birth to her I know her heart was full. I knew Levi and her ex, Charlie, those were all part of those "days from the past" but we always managed to have a laugh about the "coffee house" days and the antic's that went on back then! We were really quite the dynamic duo back then! When we grew up, Susi developed her health issues, much the same as her Mom had and I developed mine. Now at the age of nearly 70, (Susi was basically a month older than me) I think that her living in the warm climate helped to get her to the age she was! Me however, I can't handle the heat, the cold is where I do best and my husband (who passed away 2 months ago) took us up here so I could live the best life I could in a climate that could provide that! It truly is amazing what good, loving husbands will do for their wives when they truly love them more than life itself. My husband's death should never have happened, that's something that will take whatever time I have left on this earth to be able to somehow deal with, but Susi and Mike are watching us all up there in heaven along with all the other family member's who have passed before them and I know they will meet and become the friends just because they both share the same big, caring and loving hearts and if for that alone it will bring them to the same circle of our Lord's Home that is waiting for us all. Bless you Susi, I will always love you and I know too that we will see each other again when it's time! Amen....

    My Auntie Suzie was the life of the party! So vibrant and full of life. She was a sweet lady and I will miss her so much.

    A light from our family is gone, a voice we loved is stilled, a place at the table is vacant. To have you in our family was such a blessing. Your laughter, your precious smile, your heart, so kind and thoughtful. Sue was just naturally supportive and a great listener. I always knew that you truly cared. After a lifetime of her love and joy. Such a good wife and wonderful mother. Sue lived for her children. I will miss your sense of humor and laugh so much. Our hearts have been left broken, I will always have such good memories of you. Love you and miss you! Your sister-in law Nancy

    My dear friend Sue will always have a place in my heart...We met back in Westmont and we worked together and we were instant friends. She was always there for me and I was there for her and I will miss her every day...Her smile and laugh lit up the room and her kindness was so special. I know that you are with Jesus and that you will be watching over all of your family and me...I love you Sue, your dear friend Caryn
