To know Susan was to love her, she was a joy to all she met. Susan had the sweetest, tenderest spirit and most contagious smile. Her life was a testimony to the goodness of God and she brought her family so much joy. She taught us all to focus on what truly matters in life. The simplest of things made her so happy. Christmas was her absolute favorite time of year and she would enjoy her Christmas music all year long. She loved her baby dolls, stuffed tiggers and rides to town to get something to eat. Most of all she loved her family. We hope to carry on her legacy and honor her by blessing those who may need Christmas Joy.
