Susan was my first cousin and was with us when we were just little kids growing up in Clarksburg, WV. My fondest memory of Susan was a visit my Mom and I made to Ft. Worth, TX right after I graduated high school in May 196. We stayed with Aunt Mary, Susan’s Mom. Back then there was a popular song released in June of 1965 by Herman’s Hermits called “I’m Henry VIII I Am”. Susan couldn’t get enough of that song, and sang it over and over again–but she could never finish it because we were all cracking up at her impersonation of Herman’s Hermits. Such a sweet soul who loved life and made everyone around her happy to be alive. Heaven is enriched by her presence.

Susan was a very special person. I had the privilege of being her friend for the past 18 years. In spite of serious health issues which prevented her from enjoying a lot of activities we take for granted, Susan was always upbeat. She had a positive attitude and was pleasant to everyone. Many times after visiting Susan, I left realizing she had uplifted me. That was just Susan. Never complained no matter the circumstances and she appreciated any act of kindness toward her. Oh how she lit up when I’d surprise her with two of her favorites – deviled eggs and pecan pie. While I tend to think of the rough hand life dealt her, Susan didn’t seem to see it that way. She never knew how many lives she impacted just by being herself. Susan was an example of the person I can only hope to be and I am honored to call her my friend.
