While I only got to know Susan just this past year, she made a big impact on my life. I will never forget how welcome she made me feel when I first arrived to work at Will Rogers. Her sense of humor was much like mine so our conversations almost always ended with a laugh. I will miss her very much, but I will never forget her. Rest In Peace Susan, God Bless.
