Suzie was one special person She always had a smile and a kind word. The tone of her voice was calming whenever she spoke and her light always shined and her spirit was always glowing. Her presence will be missed but her memory will be in our hearts forever. If ever you've done a great job Shirlene always be proud of the job well done in rearing such a wonderful person I know she made you proud.

Suzie Q as I called her was one of the very best friends I ever had on this earth. She was so fun to be with. I loved when we took our lunch breaks together when we worked at Lowe's. It was smiles and laughter from start to finnish and that's no joke. Whatever was on your mind that may have been bothering you, it disapeared while you were hanging out with Suzie Q. To date she is the only one who's ever called me by my middle name, Louie. I have no idea why, but she just found that hilarious! lol. I will always think of her fondly, and miss her deeply. She was in fact one of my very best friends. Love you Suzie Q-Louie
