I worked with Susan for many years at Iams and remained in contact periodically after she left there. Susan had a smile that was truly unforgettable. My heart goes out to Ricky and Cassie and the rest of her family. I pray that God will wrap you in his loving arms during this time. I wish I could say more to ease your pain at this time. However, please know that many are praying for you.

Sue, You truly were a one of a kind very special lady. I first met you way back when the girls cheered & the boys played football for pee wee. You jumped right in there volunteering & working so hard not only for your own kids but everyones kids. Cassie & Ricky, I will be praying for your comfort in these very hard days ahead but also as you grieve. There are no words to heal your heartbreak. Cherish every memory & keep each other close. Turn to the Lord for comfort & guidance. Love & prayers for you both & the rest of the family.
