Thank you so much for the prayers and kind words you have offered during Susan's illness and the past week in particular. It is awesome to see how many people love her.
Yesterday's funeral service was a beautiful experience, we are grateful to the many people who took time out of their day and those who traveled great distances to be there to honor Susan's life. We are equally grateful to the many friends who, though unable to attend in person, sent their prayers and expressions of love and support from afar.
A good friend of our family has offered to collect stories about Susan's life and how her courageous fight against cancer has blessed the lives of others. These stories bring great comfort to us all and we want to be sure that they are recorded. If you feel inspired to write down your thoughts and feelings, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12:00 PM on Monday, December 15th so that they can be compiled into a book and printed in time for Christmas.
