    I was so sorry to hear about your Mom……. She was so special to everyone that knew her. We shared a passion for the horses and dogs and she will be missed. I remember fondly the times we gathered at her home and yours and of course the years of Real Estate. I think you and your Mom were some of the first I met when I started in the business. Sending prayers and hugs to you and your family ~ I hope the memories and loving thoughts from friends help ease your sorrow.

    Dear Susie,

    I know how much your mother meant to you and although I only met her once ,
    I could see what a wonderful and warm person she was. She will always be with you because “ love is stronger than death.”

    My thoughts and prayers to you and your family as you mourn the loss of your Mom. Growing up with a very traditional 1950’s stay at home Mom myself I always saw your Mother as a larger than life presence. Although I spent little time around her she made a big impression on my views of what women can do. Quite a lady!

    Oh Susie, I am so very sorry for your loss. Your Mom and I go way back….so many years, so many animals, so many wonderful conversations. She was quite a character and I loved every minute I spent with her. I can say the very same things about you too. We have a history. You are in my thoughts. Your Mom is in a better pain-free place. She will be missed.
