Oh, Susan,we grew up together, we shared so many experiences,all of which were funny and memorable. From Sunday School,to the "Cottage""! Grandma Miller there and at her home,Tommy and Patti as little kids, your mom and Dad. I came home for those sad times to be with you and flew out to Az. To be with you. Our summers at the cottage, Greenfield's maid Cora, Joe and Bobby and Joanie and Glenn, best of all Steven's Chili for 4 th of July, Keith,Steven and John with the bond fires Alice and Bradley-- spaghetti on the roof and just hanging out. You have been such a big part of my life and I am so sorry we drifted apart. My heart breaks for your children and Mike.
