    I have watched the tribute video of my friend who I met at work for New Hanover County 34 years ago a couple times and it just reminds me how much she will be missed. We spoke just before thanksgiving and as usual the conversation turn to our children and grandbabies, her boys and grandbabies that was her world. My prayers are with her family and know my dear friend you will and are already missed.

    Sad to learn about the death of Susan. She was a colleague of mine when we worked with New Hanover County Government. She was a hard and dedicated employee with the County and enjoyed life and her family. She will be missed by those who knew her.
