Now for those of you confused as to why my father and his brother have the same wife let me correct you by saying no they dont share a wife they actually each have a wife named Susan. There are alot Susan's in my life. In fact theres a Susan on my husband's side whom I absolutely adore! Love ya Susie!!!!

I wanted this Obit to have a permanent home incase they take it off the website soon. Not sure how they operate that stuff. Anyways daddy said it was, with the wind chill, -22 degrees. They were in Ohio. Southern Ohio at that. So as you can imagine the funeral was really small. But the amount of love for her was huge. I was there in spirit and so sad I couldnt make it there to say farewell. But she knows my heart and would rather me take care of my kids then suffer in the cold. She was just awesome like that. Daddy also said she had some pics of me as a child that he is going to give me. She also had a high school ring that she wore all the time and they have chosen to give it to me. Let me just say that the honor I felt when dad told me was amazing. I didnt even think about her personal belongings and to have something that she wore most of her life will be a blessing. Its nice to have a piece of her. I miss her. I am usually ok most of the time but talking about her and the funeral and the sharing of her belongings can just really hit me hard at times. I just have to say I am very blessed and I am the woman I am today because she taught me to love and to have a good heart. I hope that I show that I have a good heart and that she is proud of me and who I have become.

There ought to be a law against brothers marrying somebody with the same first name. We have that in our church and it's so confusing.

My prayers for you loss.

God bless,
