My condolences go out to family and friends. I only knew Susan for a short while, but enjoyed our many adventures together. Through Home Instead Senior Care, I was one of Susan's care providers. Wether it was going to Angelo's for cappuccino or a walk in the park, or even to mini golf where Susan got a hole in one, Susan always had a smile on her face. I will treasure the moments we had together. Rest in Peace Susan. You will be forever in my heart. Lorri xo
