    To the sons and grandchildren I am so sorry to hear about your loss of your mother. I knew Susie for quite a while. I first met her when I babysat you boys, which was really a lot of fun. I loved cooking for all of the kids in the neighborhood never nothing fancy but it was about a hit. I remember seeing you all dressing Shane in the football pad’s and pushing him down the hill at Vi-Williams hill, she threatened all of you. If he gets hurt I’m gonna beat all of you. But he loved it. Susie always tried to pay me for food and I would never take it. But she would go to the grocery and get things for me. She was a very sweet lady, we later met again at the little gaming places in town. I would cook and take things and she loved my food especially my pizza casserole and the banana split cake in which she always took some home. I will miss seeing her, She loved my brother Bill and I remember seeing her the day he passed away and she cried so hard. I’m sure she is in heaven rejoicing with so many of her family and friends. Love and prayers, and hugs to all of you. Another neighbor from New Holland Fly high sweet friend I know you are sorring with the eagle as you have earned your wings. Love and prayers for your family.

    Susie, you will always be remembered for our AWESOME softball team! 🤣What fun times !! And the one game we will never forget when you fell backwards trying to catch a ball and all we could see were your legs and butt going up in the air.! That will live on forever.
    And our two families going to Virginia Beach. The 5 boys all looked like brothers.
    We had good times whenever we were together. You will be missed by everyone. You were such a wonderful mom and great friend to so many!
    We WILL see each other again. …promise.❤️
