To Rita and the McLaughlin family and Jim and the Mitchner family.
We send our heartfelt condolences and are keeping you all in our thoughts and our prayers. May God bless you each with the strength you need during this very difficult time. I met Suzie nearly 50 years ago and she was back then and was still a joy to be around. Your smile was amazing and you will be terribly missed by so very many friends and family.
With love, you will be remembered and our memories of you shall live on within our hearts and souls.
To your families, even in your sorrow I hope you can hold on to the thought that a life lived with so much love never really ends. It will go on forever in the hearts of all those that you touched.
May your Dad, brother Mike and all of the wonderful friends and family we have known, embrace you with open arms in the heavens above.
All of our love, thoughts and prayers
The Long and Lanning Family's

Judith Monseur

Dear McLaughlin and Mitchner families: My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother. I first met Suzie when her parents and mine became friends 50 years ago; she became my friend, too. Suzie was witty, talented, and funny. Some of my best memories during my teenage years were made with Suzie, listening to music, playing badminton, and taking my first trip to the beach with her. Although we didn't see each other much in recent years, when we did, it was like old times. My heart goes out to all of you. Please know that I'm thinking of your family and hoping that your memories of Suzie bring you comfort and peace during this time.
