I played with Susan when I was very young. And Janet to. I met her when we lived in the same apts in Calif, and stayed friends for a long while. My last name was Sneed. I am from Texas and moved back when I was 7 or so maybe older. Susan was so sweet and my only friend I had in Long Beach. I wish I would have known she lived In Texas I would have looked her up. RIP sweet Sue.

I flew with your Mom at AirCal and American, her personality and spirit where one of a kind. Always a smile on her face. No white angel wings for you, I think multi colored is more your style!! Rest in peace.
