Dear Christy and Paul and members of Susie's family: I am so very sorry that you have lost your loving mother and grandmother. She was a dear, dear person, and I will never forget her. Our acquaintance began when Herbert & Dorothy brought their new baby home from the hospital and my mother furnished my formula for Susie. Dorothy's doctor didn't tell her what to feed Susie, so my mother took one of my bottles across the street to Dorothy and showed her how to mix it for her new baby. We joked about how terrific that formula was for many years.
The last time I saw Susie was at Susan Greene's funeral. I had talked to Susie on the phone about 3 months before, and we'd had a conversation that lasted at least 2 hours. (We always had a lot to say.) We never identified ourselves when the other answered the phone because we knew each other's voices so well. When I saw Susie at Susan's funeral, I had bleached my hair blonde, and as I walked toward her, I sad "see, I told you that you wouldn't know me with blonde hair." She didn't know me with blonde hair but as soon as I said that she knew my voice, her eyes lit up and we hugged; we were so glad to see each other. The problem for years has been that I don't have a car and had no way to visit her. I have missed her so much.
I am sorry that I can't be in OKC for the services but I hope to attend the burial in Idabel. If you have any idea what time it will be held, please let me know at the above email address.
Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss.
