  2. Susan,
    There are people you meet in life that have a huge impact on you, and you were one of those to me. Although we were not family, I respected you and your ways so much! You were a very honest woman that didn't sugarcoat things and that was a quality that I loved about you. Thanks to you, I had great prenatal care and two wonderful deliveries. RCFHC will not be the same without your presence. I hate to hear of your passing but I hope you rest in peace and enjoy reuniting with your husband.
