6/16/17 Twelve Years / Nancy (Mom)
I didn't know how I could live in this world with you not here. Here I am 12 years later to say that nothing is impossible with God. He got me through and reminds me every day that I will see you again! Close
Ten Years / Nancy (Mom)
It has been 10 years since the Lord took Suzanne Home. All of us who loved her....love her still. She'll always be in our hearts until we see her again. "Surly God's goodness and unfailing love pursued Suzanne all the days of her life, and she lives in the house of the Lord forever." (Psalm 23:6)

Five Years 6/16/2010 / Nancy Stratmann (Mom)
Juni 16 2010 5 years since Suzanne left for Home. I miss her. What has kept me "going" is the knowledge that she is with the Lord. She is no longer sad or lonely. She no longer feels pain or rejection. My daughter is with her Heavenly Father whose love is greatly more significant than my love for Suzanne. And that is a LOT of love!
I think of her every day - more than once a day for certain. I remember things we did together conversatins we had and our Mother-Daughter-Friend relationship. I miss her unconditional love.
Yet when I imagine how it must be for her in Heaven I am comforted. She is alive with Christ and I will see her again someday. We will have an eternity to share with Our Maker and each other.
I got my car washed on my lunch time today. It must have reminded me of Suzanne because out of the blue I got tears in my eyes. As I pulled into a drive-thru burger place I saw what I refer to as a "generic SueMobile"...a Dodge Neon like her's. That was a perfect SuzSign at a perfect time!

The night before Suzanne went Home.... / Nancy ("Mommy")
The night before Suzanne left this world for her Heavenly Home a song went through my mind. I woke up a few times in the early morning hours of Juni 16 2005 with these lyrics on my heart:
"Show me Your glory Send down Your presence I want to see Your face Show me Your glory Majesty shines about You I can't go on without You Lord"
It's been 52 months and I am just now allowing myself to go back to that night and the song the Lord gave me before He took Suzanne Home. Of course I didn't know God was preparing me for what was to come that day. Now finally looking back I consider those lyrics. My precious daughter sees the Lord's face sees His glory and is in His presence!
(The song is by Third Day "Show Me Your Glory".)
Suzanne Jenny Trinity and me at a Third Day concert.
Suzanne was born with a lot of fuzzy, black hair. She made her first appearance around 12:30 PM. Back then you didn't know if you were having a boy or a girl. I was sure that I was having a boy. So sure that when the nurse said, "You have your little Suzanne!"...I asked her if she was sure it was a girl.
It only took me a few seconds to recover from the surprise and thrill at the fact that I had a little girl! Later that evening, in the hospital room, Suzanne and I watched the John Denver Christmas special on TV.
Eventually, all of the black fuzz was gone and she was bald except for little blonde hairs that were just beginning to grow. She was a very good baby. Always smiling, and friendly with everyone.
As a toddler, she entertained herself with dolls and other fun toys. I would often hear her talking in her little-baby voice. She'd be chattering away as she played in her room. One day, she was quiet...too quiet, so I went to check on her. She had taken all the toys out of her toybox, climbed in and fell asleep.
Suzanne kept her blonde hair (most of the time ) and remained smiling and friendly as a young woman. I'm so thankful to have had a daughter that was my best friend too.
all though I miss her, shes in a better place and shows up all the time as a white butterfly...my tears are because i love her to the death of it and the truth is i only saw her a couple of times in the holiday season...the fun we had though and the talks..man the talks.
wat do you do wen you know someones there for you but you cant see them?
Marshmallow World / Nancy (Mom) A Christmas song is going through my mind today, "Marshmallow World", as sung by Bing Crosby. It was one of those old time Christmas songs that Suzanne just loved. She'd sing along in her cheerful, silly way.
"It's a marshmallow world in the winter When the snow comes to cover the ground It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day I wait for it the whole year round.
Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly In the arms of the evergreen trees And the sun is red like a pumpkin head It's shining so your nose wont freeze.
The world is your snowball, see how it grows Thats how it goes whenever it snows The world is your snowball just for a song Get out and roll it along
It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts Take a walk with your favorite girl It's a sugar date, what if spring is late In winter it's a marshmallow world."
