I am so sorry to hear about Susan. I am her cousin. My Mother was Thelma Shoup Davis and her parents were Levi and Beth Shoup. My mother's aunt was Essie. I haven't seen Susan in a very long time. Funny how you live in the same town and never see people. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Susan's family. Again I am so sorry.
