This is the baptism photo of my cousin Susan and her mom Aunt Sue.
My mom was chosen as her Godmother and was
a proud and involved participant throughout Susan's life.
I remember Susan as a diamond in the rough.
She was sweet and fierce with those she loved and children absolutely adored her
and she absolutely adored them right back.
Sadly she never married nor had children of her own.
Sadly she passed at the young age of 50
and her story in battling her illness was one of bravery and faith.
I remember when we'd visit my grandmother, she'd always make
a special effort to come visit us during our time there.
Assorted papers and basic grey rubons that I layered.
I went out to my ancestry line to look stuff up and all the information
I had mysteriously disappeared. Grrrr....
