Besides spending time with her family and friends, Susan had a passion for crafts. She made anything art. The way she created was magical and she made every moment magical paradise. She had the ability to know when people needed her help, and she touched many lives with her generosity and passion for life. She loved Sylvia Brown and John Edwards. She enjoyed eating ribbon candy, hard fudge and cotton candy. She was so joyful and the prettiest girl in school with the nickname Bunny. She was truly an energizer bunny. Every time you see a bunny think of her. She loved organizing family crafting events. Susan was the crafting queen winning 1st place in art contests. She enjoyed Bingo and being the Bingo caller. Susan never let her illness slow her down. She was known for her outstanding fashion and singing voice – creating a song for her family, “Hug Me Through the Phone” which is found on YouTube and played on radio stations.
