    I have many fond memories of the many enjoyable times Duane and I had with Susie and Pete..
    Susie was always in a happy mood and you knew there would be plenty of good food!
    I am very fortunate to have had her as a sister-in-law and a friend as well.
    I do feel you loss as Susie was in my life for many years.
    Sent with caring thoughts and rememberence
