I will miss my dear friend Susie. Many hours spent visiting, going to lunch, and altering her clothing. She friendship meant the world to me. Rest peaceful dear Susie.


We just learned today of Susie’s passing. She was a wonderful friend to us while we lived in Lee’s Summit. She was our neighborhood grandma. She was one we tried to keep in contact with after we moved. We would make unannounced stops to visit in our travels through thre KC area, but she would always welcome us in. We will miss her dearly.

I miss Susie soooo much at the garden center. I loved every visit from her and will cherish her memory for the rest of my days.
