Celebrating the life of Susan T. Holland
Thank you for signing Susan T. Holland's Guestbook
I miss you so much already momma.Thank you for everything you ever did for me,Jessica, and the children. "I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!" That will neverchange. However, not having you here changes everything for us. Nothing will feel the same without you. I know that you are in heaven now with Terry, grannie, & poppa, & that you are walking, running, & dancing on streets of gold free of pain. Rest easy in heaven until I see you again. I'll love you always & forever. 💕 Love your little girl, Caroline Reynolds.

Girls, just wanted to say Ray and I are thinking about you and the family. I am so sorry but we didn't know about Susan or we would have been there for you. Susan was a very good friend and neighbor. We would always stop and talk when we passed each other on the road. I first met your mom way back when I was working at Brogden Primary and I think It was Caroline that was Barbara Taylor's kindergarten glass. Your mom was a wonderful person and she will dearly be messed.

For 27 years as Susan's neighbor has been truly an honor and blessing. I literally saw LOVE demonstrated through Susan for her husband, children, grandchildren and beyond her family to the little ones she worked with at school along side her coworkers. Susan's LOVE was genuine and real and she had one of the most beautiful, caring smile that I will miss yet remember and always carry in my heart. I'm choosing to celebrate my neighbor, my friend's life by giving thanks to God for putting Susan and Terry and their family in my life. Her legacy of LOVE shall continue through Caroline, Jessica (Nathan) and all her darling grandchildren.
