I love you so much Suzy. You didn’t deserve what happened to you. You always made work and life a joy, there was no way to be sad or mad around you, you just had that uplifting confident personality, that we all loved. You are going to be missed by so many people. I feel and pray for your children, family, pets and other friends/coworkers during this rough time. I try my best to keep a dry face while typing this but it’s just too hard to say goodbye to such an amazing person that had so much life left to live and so much to teach. You will not be forgotten Suzette Eileen Bates Ginther! Rest In Peace beautiful soul!

I did not have the pleasure of knowing this beautiful young lady, but I do know her father, John. I am so very sorry to hear of his terrible loss. The sudden loss of a loved one is tough, but the loss of a child has to be an insurmountable experience. I wish I could do something for the family, but only time can attempt to soothe this deep wound. If it serves as any consolation at all, please know that you now have a guardian angel watching over you. My wife and I will be keeping the family in our prayers. May God bless her soul.
