Susan was a beautiful young girl.  So sweet and kind always.  I knew her through her kindness to everyone and she was a friend indeed.  I knew of her marriaged to Bobby Fitzsimmons and that she had two beautiful children.  I grew up with her husband, Bobby.  He lived a few houses down from ours when we were very young (before elementary school)  We started elementary school together and rode the same bus.  He, myself and another friend were inseparable during our young youth. (I was the only girl around).  I ran into Susan one day, several years (not sure how long) after graduation, and she had her two beautiful children with her.  They were both toddlers.  She mentioned that she had married Bobby.  When I got hoime,  I mentioned this to my husband and he proceeded to tell me that he was in the service (Special Forces) with Bobby and knew him well.  What a small world.   I know not what happened between Bobby and Susan, but  one day while reading our newspaper here in St. Augustine, there was a beautiful young woman on the front page showing her gorgeous garden of flowers.  You could tell she was very proud, but shy.  That was Susan.  Still a beautiful lady.  She was very gifted in many ways and I am sure her family is with great sorrow now.  I sincerely send my condolences to both children and her brother.  May she rest in peace.
