Susan did everything to overcome the battle with breast cancer. If prayers and love could keep her with us she would have been here forever. Susan loved children her own and her numerous nieces and nephews. She will be missed but we know there is a special angel in heaven spreading her wings and free of all the pain and suffering.

A special thank you to the nurses that helped. May God Bless you all. Your kindness will never be forgotten.
