    It has always been important to me to work with the kindest and the best. Susan has been a rep in our office for many years and I count her as one of the kindest and definitely the best. She will be greatly missed.

    Dear Dave and Family,
    We were saddened to learn of the loss of Susan. We’ll always remember her as warm hearted, fun loving, and kind. She was definitely one of the good ones. We’ll keep you in our thoughts.

    I have known Susan for years, and cannot believe we lost her so quickly. We would sit around and laugh for hours (if she did that with every account I don’t know how she ever made a living ;)). We loved her so much, she was much more than a sales rep-she was truly a friend.
