Susie and I had many good times together! She spoke her mind and that was one thing I really liked about her. She was always up for a bonfire or get together with friends and family and fun! Loved her so much will miss her but I have my memories! Prayers for Danny and Children for their loss.

As a former member of her family, I just want to express my sadness at her passing. She went through alot prior to that date. I always thought she was a pretty young lady and was always nice to me many years ago. I am sending well wishes to the family that survives. I sincerely hope everyone can get through this. I lost a brother and sister and nephew all within the past year. It isn’t easy, but I pray you do well. I was married to Dennis Barb.
