“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
– Abraham Lincoln
Susie was the love of my life from the time I was 15 and she was 13 years old. We married in 1975 and had a very happy 46 years. With 3 children, all of whom have grown to adulthood and are established in happy homes, we now have 11 grandchildren. Her relationship with Jesus was the strength that held our home together. She was diligent to learn and grow in the Lord her entire life, right up until she died. Her body donation was in the hopes that something good would be discovered that would prevent someone else from experiencing the pain she endured.
