  3. To All of Susie’s Precious Family and Friends,
    To say, “I’m sorry for your loss,” seems so inadequate and such an understatement, although I truly am so very sorry. You are a beautiful family, and Susie’s amazing legacy will continue to live on through each of you! May the God of all comfort saturate you with His peace, His presence and His power during this very difficult season. The best is yet to come!
