    My prayers go out to all the family for the loss of your loved one. I met Susan several years ago when we would all gather for a meal in Columbia. She was always such a kind and pleasant person to be around. Cherish the memories you have and know she has gone on to a better place.

    I will miss her. It has been years since I worked at IRI but it was always great to see her during the times I would occasionally stop by to say hi to everyone. The last time I visited…I think it was in October…she stuck up for me when the manager asked if I had been any good at calling. I’m glad I got to give her a hug instead of just saying hi. She will be missed.

    Susan was the heart and soul of our call center and took great pride in the work she did. She will be missed, but her influence will most certainly carry on!

    A welcoming presence in Columbia for a new arrival from the East. A tremendously strong coworker. A wonderful, generous person, who added a positive spirit by her presence. She is missed here already. My condolences to her loved ones for their loss.

    Just today I heard of your sweet Mother’s passing in March. Words cannot express my heart-felt sympathy to you and your family. Your Mother was a wonderful person whom I only met through the conversations you and I would have about her. Your grieve and sadness are insurmountable, but remember she will always and forever be in your heart. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family, especially Vivian.
