What a wonderful friend Suzanne was to my Mom. The Kerr's are like members of our family. She will be missed by all the Glovers.
Suzanne was a classy lady with a wonderful sense of humor. She lived her life with integrity and grace. Her friendship with our mom, Evelyn, was very special and we appreciate that so much. I know you will miss her presence, but I'm sure she left her family and friends with fond memories.
Suzanne was my mom's best friend. They were so opposite of each other, however, they made a long lasting, forever friendship. They laughed and cried together, took trips & had the best parties. She will be missed by our entire family. Love you Suzanne.
