To the Lawrence Family, my sincere condolences. Suzy will be remembered by so many for her friendly, fashionable ways. She always had time to chat, as a cashier at Sobeys, all the while, efficiently checking you through. May you find peace in the days ahead and be comforted with wonderful memories of a dear lady.

So very sad to learn about Suzy's passing. She was a remarkable lady. I am so happy I got up to see her Friday afternoon. Little did I think it would be the last time I would hear her sing her favourite "The Lord Loves Me" Suzy I miss you so much, you were so special. Every time I saw you, no matter where you'd put your finger to your cheek and with a big smile say, "Where's my kiss"? I'll never forget you Suzy, I have some very special memories of you. My condolences to your family and all the friends you made throughout your life. I know you are now resting with Jesus in your heavenly home.
