Thinking of Susie today and all of her family. My condolences and may The Comforter be with you. I met Susie a few times in my life; what I remember most is my 2007 visit to NY and taking Susie & her sister Pat out to eat Chinese food. Was a nice visit. After lunch, Pat suggested I have Susie be my "tour guide" for finding and driving around Cornell husband's paternal grandparents were graduates of that university and I had told my husband, Steve, I would get pictures since I would be nearby. So, the next day, Susie was indeed a good I got to meet Diana Evans that day - Pat & Jack's daughter who worked at Cornell over the food/catering dept. (That is what I remember.) That was a fun day and definitely made a lasting memory for me. I have a picture of Susie giving my mom a hug in 1975...that trip was very special because my mother, Florence, had not been back to NY for a very long time -- since I was 6 months old in 1954.
A part of my mother never left NY. From my mother I learned that time and distance does not diminish the bonds of Love, Family and Friendship. Sending thoughts, love and prayers (from Oklahoma) your way. Debra
