Hi! It's the other Susie Clemens. I am soooo sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Last I knew she was living with Mary Anne. I was hoping to come to the viewing, but I have some health issues that prevent me from coming. If it were not for COVID, I would come. No, I do not have COVID. Mary Anne, did you move? I would have loved to see all of you! Please contact me at 484-269-6759. Sincerely Sue.
