    Dear Wes & Family, So sorry for your loss. May loving memories of Suzanne help sustain and comfort you. I fondly remember Suzanne being a part of my childhood, and Marsha and I are so glad we had the chance to vist with both of you at the SRVHS Reunion. With deepest sympathy, Bob & Marsha Nickerson

    Dear Wes, John, Rex, Kay and rest of Family: Although it has been several years since Suzanne and I hung out with the family, I can feel your pain of loss from here in Livermore. I have many wonderful memories from long ago. I remember going to the Ark just south of Peteluma, a little house on the water, where we got to stay up late, playing cards. I can still remember the giggling from the girls room vs the boys room with Aunt Buela Mae sleeping in the room between the two, guarding to keep us separated. I remember fishing there. The big breakfasts with eggs, meat, potatoes and toast and plenty of milk. I remember staying all night with Suzanne and her mentoring me. I was in awe of her being able to put make up with ease. These things happened in 1960. Seems like yesterday right now. I remember her mom giving us lessons of etiquette, regarding putting a meal together. Three pieces of chicken, not 2, a potato and always a colorful vegie. Elvis, we listened to Elvis on her record player. Yes, so many great memories I'll never forget. I love you Suzanne. One day, we will all see you again. I already know you will watch over your family. Please do not dwell in your sadness for her. It will make her happy to see you happy. Love to all of you who are already missing this awesome person. Her friend and yours, Alice

    Dear Wes, Kara & John, I am so deeply saddened to hear of Suzanne's passing. I will always remember her as an optimist, and as someone always ready with a kind word and a huge heart. My thoughts are with you during this devastating time. - Stephanie Webb

    I am heart broken with the loss of my dearest, loving friend of 61 years. We met at the age of 9 in the school yard of Stone Valley Elementary School where are life long friendship began. This incredible journey wove its way together through our childhood, teenagers, young wild adults at college, marriage, children, and life. While my love for you is ever present, a large part of my heart is lost. I am comforted knowing you are now my guarding angel. My sympathies and love to the family. Diana Holman Gerbovitz

    I remember Suzanne from Stone Valley School. Intelligent and with a great heart, she always had a great smile. I am sure she will be missed by many. I always remember Suzanne and Diana Holman as inseparable. Sorry to hear of her passing, and best wishes to those she left behind.

    I am so saddened and do not know how to handle the passing of my dearest friend of over 30 yrs. Tahoe will never be the same without my "buddy" across the street, we shared so many good times, so many laughs, so many snow storms and so many great times on the beach, I will never be the same. My love and condolences to the entire Hagstrom family starting w/ Wes, John and Kara and of course Suzanne's brother Rex and his wonderful wife Kay. Love to all of you, you have been in my prayers since Suzanne's diagnosis. Love you all. Dee Demartini-Birtcil
