As Chris and I have been friends since 1972, I spent a lot of time at her house. I will always remember Suzanne stopping in. I always thought she was so cool. She was married and worked in the big city. She was always kind and welcoming. Over the years in the times we may have been together, I began to see how really smart, funny and interesting she was. She will be missed, but Heaven will be a better place having her there. Love to Chris, Bob, Erin and B.J.
