    Dear Helen,
    Your Mom will definitely be missed by all of us who knew her and worked with her. She was a very special lady. Always enjoyed our luncheons with her and other Ivey coworkers. My prayers are with you. Your Mom loved you with all her heart and was so proud of you. Love to you

    Susan was a ray of light. Her Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner parties were legendary. She was such a wonderful lady and will be truly missed.
    I will always remember Susan and how welcoming she was. Heaven defiantly took another Angle home.
