Although many years have passed, I have so many fond memories of your Mom from the 1950s and 60s, and our old neighborhood. She was such a kind, generous and loving lady. The work she did in our schools touched the lives of all of us for many, many years. She truly was an inspiration!
I vividly remember Gary and Susie coming to our class parties in elementary school with your Mom, and how much I envied you for having a "little" brother and sister, since I only had older brothers. I thought you were so lucky!
No doubt your Mom's passing has been difficult for you all. May you find peace, comfort and understanding in God's loving arms. With deepest sympathy to you all.

$u$an, Harald and I would like to extend our condolences to you and your family. I wish we could have been there for you.
Sincerely, Maria (Kegebein) & Harald
My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. It is so hard to lose someone you love, especially your Mom. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers Susan. May God help you in this time of need. Love you.
Larry and family sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I was thinking of her and Mr. Troy just the other day. Have lost contact over years with family. Please call.
MAYBE SOMEDAY I will forget
The bad and the sad
The things I regret
MAYBE SOMEDAY it won't be so raw
To do what we did
To see what we saw
MAYBE SOMEDAY I'll live through a storm
And not think of you cold
But snug, safe and warm
MAYBE SOMEDAY I'll again eat ice cream
And not hope to wake up
From just a bad dream
MAYBE SOMEDAY I will reconcile
What everyone tells me
“It just takes a while”
MAYBE SOMEDAY I'll be able to feel
That this is better for you
But now it's surreal
MAYBE SOMEDAY I'll accept you're not here
And then I'll stop waiting
For you to appear
MAYBE SOMEDAY you will not be
My reason for living
But a good memory
MAYBE SOMEDAY an old couple I'll see
And not be so angry
They don't belong to me
MAYBE SOMEDAY we won't feel so alone
Now that we're orphans
Now that you're gone
MAYBE SOMEDAY we'll forget what we had
And learn life goes on
Without Mom and Dad
Maybe someday “‘til Death do us part”
Will not be the reason
For my broken heart
MAYBE SOMEDAY I'll be less selfish and then
I'll be able to accept
You're together again
MAYBE SOMEDAY I'll stop writing this song
But I am afraid if I do
You will really be gone
Maybe someday. But not today.
For Troy and Lettie Ratliff on the occasion of her death
