Good Morning. I would like to thank 2 special ladies for this above tag. Chrissie who sent this to me and Sugar for adding my sister's name to it.
I ask you all to go to a previous entry I made titled, My Beautiful Sister. In the comments section you will find a comment left by Susie's husband (my brother in law) addressed to all of you. My heart breaks for Mike, because I know he is hurting over the loss of his wife/bestfriend. Tonight I will join Mike and so many other wonderful people who loved Susie so very much, to say goodbye to our Susie.
So many of you got to read her journal and hear her stories of her life and her family, her beliefs and disbeliefs, but I wish you could of known her in person. Susie could walk into a room and the love would just surround her. She would smile and all around her would feel how much she loved life, her family and her friends. Everyone who met her would love her. She just had a way about her where hate could not enter in her life or anyone else's who was around her. Love, warmth and kindness is what Susie was about.
Tonight there will be many tears shed for this remarkable lady. But my tears will not be tears of sadness. They will be tears of happiness, because I know Susie is making her journey into God's kingdom. In heaven she will no longer feel pain or sadness. She will be the beautiful angel I always told her she was. I will not mourn her death, but I will celebrate her life that she shared with us here on earth, and celebrate the new life she will now have in heaven. She will be welcomed into god's kingdom not only by our lord and god but by so many who knew her here on earth. It warms my heart knowing she will be up in heaven watching over my niece Sandra who passed away 4 years ago at the young age of 18, my nephew Bryant who passed away at the age of 5 mos old, and my grandson Michael who passed away just hours before his birth. I just know in my heart Susie will take them under her wings and keep them forever by her side. I hope she is given the opportunity to meet my mother. My mom was like Susie in so many ways. Always wanting to do something for others and never asking for anything in return. I think they would become the greatest of friends if they met.
So Susie, as you walk across the Strawberry Patch rainbow through the clouds in the sky and journey to your new home, go with peace in your heart. We here on earth will miss you, but we will be just fine. You have left a piece of you here on earth in our hearts and also with the two beautiful children you blessed this world with.
Rest in Peace my sister, and spread your wings and fly. I love you.
Your sister always and forever..............Cindy
