    I am very sorry Jacob! When you’re aunt told me yesterday at Walmart what had happened I didn’t want it to be true. You’re mom was so nice and sweet. Again, I am so sorry 😢

    I am so sorry for your loss. I am friends with Lynn Sauder, Susan’s sister in law, and I know the suffering you and the family are going through. Sometimes we just don’t understand the whys of a tragedy such as this. It is only for the Lord to know. But the love shared in your family will know no bounds. It is through this love you will have the strength to get through. Prayers sent your way.

    Missed more than words can describe. I will never wear purple again without thinking of her first! She was so loving, compassionate, and caring. Truly an amazing woman who had such an impact on so many lives.

    One of the best managers in the game. I use to always come visit after I left and graduated college. I kept her updated on school and her birthday was the day after mine so use to take off at the same time and come back and share our stories. I hate I’m just now finding out but I’m going to miss you so much. Condolences goes out to the family

    I knew Susan in Tyler, Tx from Kindergarten through the 6th grade when she moved to Arkansas. We lived a block away from one another and were inseparable. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I have tried for years to find her on social media, and just now found this. Prayers for all of you.
