Relation: neighbour long ago

Susan was our neighbour when I was a child, and later married a co-worker of mine. Condolences to the family – nice lady – she will be missed. I was too scared to sit on her horse – I can still visualise how huge it looked to little me. I never did sit on a horse.

Relation: sister in law

My heart goes out to you, Jason.It is the most difficult thing to have your mother no longer around to talk to. Susan was on my mind on the 14th and I didn’t have the time to call. We will talk when I meet her on the other side. In time, your heart will heal but there will always be a special place there that can be filled by no other. Cherish her there. <3
