I worked with Susie here at LGE and was one of the first people to get to know her and I have to say, she was by far one of the best supervisor's

I have ever had the priviledge to work with. I respected and admired her as a person and as a Boss. She did so much for us here in the call center in the year she was with us and I will never forget the kindness and repore she had with all of us. Susie and I had the same birthday and had alot in common she often referred to me that we were "kindred spirits". I have to tell you that I am so sorry for your loss and our loss b/c

she not only changed our call center but truly cared for all of us and our well being. I want to tell you about what she did for me personnaly one day. One day I was working in the call center and became very light headed and sick she kept asking me questions to see if I was having a stroke she even told me that was what she was looking for. She stayed with me until my husband got here to take me to the hospital. The next day she called me to check on me and brought our mascot Dollar Dog and a bouquet of flowers to cheer me up. She took my picture and I was so surprised she took the time to visit me and cared so much that she made a special trip just to let me know how much she cared. I know from conversations with her that she truley adored her family and talked about how special all of you were to her. She often showed me pictures of her family and would tell me stories and she always smiled especially

when her grandson Wesley was born she would always would light up when I asked about him.

I truley will miss Susie and I want to express my deepest sympathy to you her family. I have a video I made at Christmas of Susie playing her flute with the call center singing. I showed this to her and she wanted me to send it to her but I didn't know how to at the time so if you would like for me to send it to you I would be glad to.

My daughter hepled me download it so if you want a copy just send me yuor address and I would be happy to send it to you.

Again I want to express my deepest sympathy and I will be praying for your family.
