Happy Birthday! / Joanne Savino (just passing by )
Happy Birthday - My sister is up there with you. Please know that we love you and miss you down here. Hope that your birthday is as wonderful as the previous years.
Merry Christsmas from Heaven Now don't shed a tear; I'm spending my Christmas With Jesus this year!
May God Bless and hold each one of you this holiday season. I know how rough it is. My son passed at the age of 17 in 2003, born in 1985. I still cry all the time. But I know we will meet again someday.

Praying You Find Peace and Comfort.... / Melisa Cooper (~Amanda's Mom~ )
This is probably what Heaven's Gardens look like...A Garden of Peace Lilies....Our "Angels" ARE at Peace....I know this with ALL my Heart and Soul....God Bless You and Keep You in His Loving Care Until We are ALL Reunited....
THE MAN YOU WANTED ME TO BE / MICHAEL RASNER (COUSIN)
Although I miss what was lost, your memory has touched others and I like wings of a feather, bringing togetherness in family celebration. As you look down on us from heaven and see me doing the righteous acts that you have influenced me to do, I pray to our father to let your touch rest on Uncle Bill's shoulders and give him strength, along side of me and always clean. Is that man I have to be so wrong in choosing to have feelings? Answer my prayer with a Sue sign. Close
MY CHILD / SELMA FLYNN BOBBO.MEMORY-OF.COM (friend)
On the day God took you
I thought that I would die
I wondered where the time went?
I asked alot of whys??
With people all around me
I felt alone inside
From all their words of comfort,
I couldn't seem to hide, I thought I might be dreaming
That I'd wake and find you here,
I thought "This can't be happening."
As I wiped another tear.
On the day that you were laid to rest
My heart broke yet again,
I wondered if the pain would end,
But mostly, I wondered when??
It's hard to be without you,
At times the days seem long,
Sometimes I just sit crying,
When there's really nothing wrong.
I wish we'd had more time,
Before your life was done.
I hope your resting peacefully,
My precious child, Close
I was just reminded of a movie Suzanne urged me to watch, 'cause she liked it..."The Butterfly Effect". There's another butterfly SuzSign today!
The day the Lord took Suz Home, I found one of her sweatshirts in her apartment. I grabbed it and hugged it, crying into it whenever necessary. I still keep that sweatshirt close by...still hug it, still cry into it. I place it beside me when I go to sleep at night. One morning, recently, I woke up missing Suzanne more than ever. As I lay in bed crying, I felt something on my neck. I reached for it, pulled it up to see what it was....the sleeve from Suz's sweatshirt wrapped around me as if she were giving me a hug!
Thanks for the hug, honey! I love you so very much and miss you like crazy! I know that I'll see you again one day and I look forward to that!
THOUGHT ABOUT WHEN WE WOULD TALK WHEN I WAS FEELING BLUE.
THOUGHT ABOUT THE GOOD TIMES, AND MEMORIES WE SHARED.
THOUGHT ABOUT HOW YOU MADE ME FEEL WHEN I THOUGHT NO ONE ELSE CARED.
I THINK ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU’VE DONE AND ALL THE LIVES YOU TOUCHED.
BUT MOST OF ALL I THINK ABOUT HOW I MISS YOU SO MUCH …..
I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH SUE. I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERYDAY AND NIGHT. YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME AND I WILL NEVER FORGET ALL THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH TOGETHER. I AM THANKFULL FOR YOU INTRODUCING ME TO LOGAN, FERREL, DENISE, SHANNON, SHEA, MISTY, KRISTINA, AND THE REST OF THE GANG. I AM THANKFULL FOR ALL THE TIMES YOU HAVE BEEN THERE FOR ME HELPING ME THROUGH SOME VERY TRYING TIMES. I AM THANKFULL FOR ALL THE TIME WE SPENT TOGETHER DOING DIFFERENT THINGS AND JUST HANGING OUT. BUT MOST OF ALL I AM THANKFULL FOR YOU LETTING ME BE A PART OF TRINITY’S LIFE AND LETTING ME SPEND TIME WITH HER. SHE IS SO BEAUTIFULL, AND STRONG. EVERYTIME I LOOK AT HER I SEE YOU MORE AND MORE. SHE IS THE WORLD TO ME AND I LOVE HER SO MUCH ….. THANK YOU SUE AND I LOVE YOU ……..
Now that I'm gone / Misty Baker (Friend) Now that I am gone, remember me with smiles and laughter. And if you need to cry, cry with your brother or sister who walks in grief beside you. And when you need me, put your arms around anyone and give to them what you need to give to me. There are so many who need so much. I want to leave you something -- something much better than words or sounds. Look for me in the people I've known or helped in some special way. Let me live in your heart as well as in your mind. You can love me most by letting your love reach out to our loved ones, by embracing them and living in their love. Love does not die, people do. So, when all that's left of me is love, give me away as best you can.Close
For just a moment / Misty Baker (Friend)
For just a moment I’m sure I saw a flicker of light ahead. Perhaps it was your smile. Though past now, remembered, in my heart like the small sound of a butterfly passing by. No night is so dark that can not be brightened with memories of you. Raindrops carry along your blessings from heaven to wash away my tears and bring me hope anew.
Things aren't always easy to understand. The death of your daughter has been devastating for you. Know that I am always, always with you. I understand your pain and confusion. I understand when you are irritable and lack motivation. Please trust me in this circumstance. Remember what Paul wrote in the scriptures: "For me to live is Christ, to die is gain."
Suzanne has gained perfect Love perfect Peace perfect Joy perfect Hope perfect Trust And what she asked most for while on earth, perfect Faith.
She stands in the great Light of My Love and favor. She looks upon My Face. She is Home.
Special Thanks / Nancy Stratmann (Mother)

ALWAYS WATCHING OVER ME. / CARMEN GUZMAN (FRIEND)Read >>
ALWAYS WATCHING OVER ME. / CARMEN GUZMAN (FRIEND)
THERE ARE SO MANY STORIES AND MEMORIES I COULD TELL ABOUT SUE, AND I HAVE HAD MANY SIGNS FROM HER BUT ONE IN PARTICULAR HAPPENED ON THE DAY OF HER PASSING. I HAD RETURNED FROM AVENAL AND WAS AN EMOTIONAL WRECK. FILLED WITH SADNESS, CONFUSION, AND A DEEP EMPTINESS THE ONLY THING I WANTED TO DO WAS GO HOME AND BE ALONE. MY FAMILY STRONGLY OBJECTED TO IT BUT FINALLY GAVE INTO ME, AND LET ME DRIVE HOME. SITTING IN THE CAR I TURNED ON THE RADIO TO TRY AND OCCUPY MY MIND. IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT SUES FAVORITE SONG “ HOLLA BACK GIRL” BY GWEN STEFANI STARTED PLAYING. I FELT A WARM FEELING COME OVER ME, AND FELT AS IF SHE WAS RIDING WITH ME. WHEN THE SONG ENED I TURNED THE RADIO TO ANOTHER STATION AND THE SONG WAS PLAYING AGAIN. THIS HAPPENED FOUR TIMES. NEARING MY HOUSE I CAME TO AN INTERSECTION WHERE IF I TURNED LEFT IT LEAD TO MY HOUSE AND RIGHT LEAD TO OUR FRIEND KRISTINA’S HOUSE. I WAS IN NO MOOD TO SEE PEOPLE AT THIS TIME BUT SOMETHING MADE ME DRIVE BY HER HOUSE. WHEN I GOT THERE I NOTICED A LOT OF CARS THERE AND I STOPPED. KRISTINA CAME OUT AND TOLD ME THAT THEY ALL HAD GATHERED TO TALK ABOUT SUE AND REMEMBER HER. THE AMAZING PART WAS THAT SOME FRIENDS THAT WE HAD NOT SEEN IN A LONG TIME JUST DECIDED TO SHOW UP FOR NO REASON AT ALL. WE ALL SHARED OUR STORIES, AND MEMORIES OF SUE WITH EACH OTHER THAT NIGHT. EVEN THOUGH I WANTED TO BE ALONE THAT NIGHT SUE KNEW BETTER AND GUIDED ME THERE. SHE WAS AN ANGEL BEFORE SHE LEFT US AND I KNOW THAT HEAVEN IS A BETTER PLACE WITH SUE LOOKING DOWN AND WATCHING US FROM HER CLOUD. SHE WILL ALWAYS HOLD A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART AND I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT I WAS SOMEONE SHE CALLED FRIEND. I LOVE YOU SUE………
