Dear Mr. & Mrs. Martin, Sandy and Jen,
We only learned of the death of Susie last evening (Wednesday). One of mom’s (Barbara  Givler) friends saw the obituary and called her on Monday evening and she only remembered to share it with us. I don’t know if you know that mom has been living with us in Manheim since Christmas 2014.
Please accept our sincere expression of sympathy at the loss of your daugher and sister. I am sure it is a difficult time and as God brings you to mind over the coming year, we will be sure to keep you all in our prayers. Loosing a loved one no matter the age is oh so difficult.  May God supply you abuntantly with His unfailing grace and peace at this tiime, and may the memories you shared with Susie bring you happiness and joy.
In Christ,
Dick and Pam Shellenberger (Pam Givler)

I am very sorry for your loss. If Susan was anything like her son Robbie who I work with, she must have been a great person. Please accept my deepest condolences.
