Dear Ralph and family;
I am so sorry for your loss. Susie was such a wonderful example of the love of Jesus as she to had a kind gentle spirit, loving and accepting of others regardless of their stature. Its the people like Susie that make this world a better place and draws others to know more about the love of God. Susie is now healed and rejoicing with Jesus. I pray for comfort, peace, strength and for Gods love to be shown to you all in an overwhelming way. May we all strive to be more like Susie but most of all more like Him. Prayers for you all...Adam, April , and Levi
