    I already miss her so much and haven't seen her face to face in months, but always kept in touch via Facebook. She was sweet, funny, considerate, a blast to be around, laughed easily, great sense of humor, I could go on and on. Just pure goodness...

    Dear Dr. Benson, Becky, David, John, My heart goes out to you all for Susan's recent passing. I have so many fond childhood memories of growing up with Susan, and playing with her on the boulevard. She always had a smile on her face, seemed to enjoy life to the fullest, and was up for anything we could come up with! This is how I will always think of Susan. Please know that you all are in my thoughts.
