Susan was one of the people I admired most in my life. She and I were very close in elementary school. She was great fun and so kind and thinking of others. I did not realize she had passed until this site. I was so looking forward to seeing her again.

What can I say about Susan except that she was one of the truest friends that I have ever had. She had a heart of gold and loved life even though she had been dealt some crummy blows. Her mom died at a very young age leaving her to be mother to her younger sister and caretaker of her dad and older brother. She suffered lifelong back pain from severe Scoliosis as a young girl which left her in a full body cast for 8 months. She nursed a sick husband for years and never complained once.
I met her in 10th grade and we kept our friendship going until her death. She was a loving friend, wife and confidant who was taken too soon. I miss her every day but know that she is in a better place. Looks, money and social status meant nothing to her and she would drop everything to help someone she loved.She did that for me when I made her be my roommate when I moved to Dallas and told her I hated living alone. She laughed, cried and remembered everything about you, and never held a grudge.

She was 54 when she died and so that would have been the spring of 2005. Her 2nd husband of 4 years was the one who called us when she died. I was so shocked and saddened. We attended her funeral in New Braunfels.
Many tears were shed, but we celebrated her life because that is what she would have expected.
