  1. It was always a pleasure to visit Susan and Don when their appliances needed attention. We had interesting conversations and a few laughs. You could feel the love between them. Peace.

  2. Susan will be missed, I worked with her at Foresight Land Service for many years and she always found time to lesson. At Christmas time the girls in the office always gave something small to each other, I would mention something that I liked or thought was interesting in the spring, summer, really anytime during the year and Susan would remember and that would be my gift that year. Amazing!
    She will be in my thoughts and prayers tonight.
    Peace be with you Susan.

  3. Susan was a very kind and gentle soul. We are so glad that she and Don found each other.

With eternal love, Kathy & Mike

  5. Susan was a kind and gentle soul. We were able to spend lots of time with her and Don over their 30 years together. They visited us over the years in Tucson, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and Austin, Texas. We also visited them many times in both CT and MA. One of our favorite memories is when we happened to be at their West Stockbridge home over Halloween. We had so much fun giving out candy to the kids and commenting on their amazing costumes, of which our favorite was Michael Jackson. We take comfort in knowing that she and Don are together again and in a better place. We send love and condolences to her family.
