    "Suzy was a breath of fresh air and one of my dearest friends. We played music together and she was a dinner guest a couple weeks ago. I loved her laugh, her wonderful sense of humor. She sang at my wedding and painted out engagement portrait. Dear Suzy how we loved you!! Life down here will never be the same. When I get to Heaven I will expect to hear the angels yodel just the way Suzy is teaching them. She has left such an empty spot in my heart. "

    "In addition to the musical talent which she shared so readily and freely, I found Aunt Suzy to be a wealth of information about our family history, nature, artifacts, etc. I admired her strength and independent spirit, and will dearly miss hearing her perform, her stories, and her laugh. Holding you all close in my heart."
