GUEST BOOK

Rusty and family, It has been so good to see your mom in church with you at FBCI. Her constant outgoing smile and friendship took me back to the Bull Street Sundays and precious memories there. May God grant you peace and joy in remembrance. "When we all get to heaven What a day of rejoicing that will be When we all see Jesus We'll sing and shout for victory!"

Rusty and Ranee, so many memories have been built with your parents and you. We met in Charlotte, NC. In 1973. They had the apartment above ours. Every afternoon after work our dogs (Beauregard, Amos and George) needed walking and the pet parents visited in the parking lot,. This was all before children. Children did arrive and our lives began to take a different turn. The Bragg’s moved back to Savannah, Armstrongs made several work related moves before settling in Athens and we eventually returned to be near family in our home state of Florida. Over the years we stayed in touch, vacationed together at your beach house and celebrated the accomplishments and milestones of our children. We enjoyed several lovely visits with your mom the past few years when we stopped or were passing through Savannah. I admired your mom so much. She was so kind, had such unique common sense wisdom and the desire to help others. She loved you and Renee so much . Ashlyn, Delaney and Riley gave her such joy. Her faith in our Lord Christ strengthened her in her many health battles. We will miss her terribly. Love you, Lamar and Darlene

Susan and I met over 50 years ago when we were both engaged to be married. We became fast friends with our years of motherhood, celebrations, trips, Georgia games, our children’s weddings, our husbands’ passings, and years of just girl time. I cherish these many years together and I will always embrace these memories and remember Susan with love and appreciation as my dearest friend.

I am sorry for your loss. Susan touched lots and lots of lives. She was a ‘trooper’. She had great conversational skills and was truly responsive to others. Her smile and sense of humor will always be remembered. And, she was a tough person. No one could have done the work she did without mental and physical toughness. She held people accountable for their actions. She is and will be missed. I am so lucky to have known her. Compassion and mercy in these moments of loss beyond words. She was a ‘Marine’ in God’s army. And she continues as an inspiration for those of us living and is part of our journey with others.
