    I just heard Suzanne that you got a promotion up to Heaven! You were so kind, and I missed you when you moved from Clayton. You drew me a wonderful birthday card one year for my birthday and I will always cherish it, as well as our friendship. My prayers are with your dear family. ❤

    Suzanne Anderson you will be so missed by so many, but Oh! I can only imagine your joy as you saw Jesus face to face! What a hallelujah!! I won't forget our times at Way of Life Baptist, your sweetness, your Godly example, having you as my Secret Sister (the white crocheted bookmark is still in my Bible) and your love for children. I'll see you again one sweet day... thankful for the promise of heaven. I'll be praying for your family.
