Dancing with Jesus.

I hesitate to write this too early, too close to the time I heard the news that she was gone.  But I have to write, I have to express myself somehow. 
A woman that I have known for over 20 years passed away yesterday.  She was beautiful, funny, kind, loving and most importantly IN LOVE with the Lord.  I know she is dancing with Jesus right now, but I miss her so and there is, and always will be, a place in my heart for her.
This woman, whom I spent countless hours with as a child, even calling her mom on occassion, is the mother of my longest childhood friends, Toni, Taylor and Sarah. 
At the young age of 54, Susan passed away from a stroke (a massive bleed in her brain).  She was loved by so many and touched so many lives, including my own.
Over the years, as too often happens, I lost touch with the family.  Over the past couple of years, I have reconnected with Susan and the girls and even taken on Susan's maiden name when I married her first cousin, David.

Susan-You always lit up a room with your beauty and your smile.  Your laugh was contagious and it was always a joy to be around you.  Your love for the Lord and your family was inspiring.  I feel so blessed to have known you and for you to have played such a big role in my life.  I promise to continue loving the girls you left behind.  You will never be forgotten, for you will live in our hearts always.  We love you.


  1. Babe, that was a beautiful tribute. We should all be so blessed to have someone remember us this way!

  2. A beautiful tribute indeed. I'm so very, very (very) sorry about your loss. :( Big hugs to you and yours.

  3. Cheryl! This was so sweet and made me cry! If you need anything TEXT ME!

  4. So sorry to hear of your loss! May God give you and the family of your friend strength during this difficult time.


    I just stumbled upon your blog and thought how neat it was to see your blog title. Mine is Raising Little Lambs... I don't know if Lamb is your last name or not, but that is my last name. Anyways, just wanted to say hello! Looking forward to reading more about your family.

  5. Thank you everyone. The service was beautiful, as was Susan. :)

    Emily-hi! :D I will have to look up your blog and become a follower. You are more than welcome to follow mine as well. Our last name is not Lamb...we were just inspried by the Scripture verse, but I think that is precious that your last name is Lamb and you were able to incorporate that into your blog title. :D Nice to meet you. :)
