Suzie Aka: Sadie

Recommended Posts

I just got off the phone with Suzie, She sounds great as always. She always seems to be in good spirits when we talk. I love to hear her voice. Well anyways as Darlene mention she is getting weeker and has lost some weight. She told me that they have been picking out pictures for a slide that they will show at her funeral.

 

Her friend who is doing that showed them part of the slide and She said it brought tears to her eyes. Today before I had called she was picking ut the music she wants to go with it. She had mentioned she can't get out of bed her BP is really low. I thing she said 74/40. She mention that the hospice is great and she is happy to have them there.

 

She is ok about leaving us and she knows she will be in a better place. As I said we had a nice talk for about 45 to 1 hour. She will be calling me tomorrow. She did mention her parents will call me if she passes on so I can let you and other know. Well I'm gonna go and you all take care and keep writing messages to her she said she will be on later to read them. Sam

Thanks for letting us know Sam. It means a lot to know she is in good spirits and is at peace with what is going on. She is the strongest person I know and I have so much love and respect for her. That's wonderful that you got to talk to her.

Thanks again for the update.

Thanks Sam. There's an old R&B song by The Spinners titled "Sadie". I thought of it last night when I saw her friend Darlene's post and heard it today! It's a very endearing song about a very special woman named Sadie. In my fantasy world, it was written for our Sadie!

I'm so sad to hear about Sadie. It makes me feel so much better knowing that she's at ease with her journey. She is a true inspiration!


Take care and stay warm,

Sadie, maybe you can find the music for the song Sadie from the spinners. I don't believe I have ever heard it. I should call a radio station and ask them to play it and see what it is about.

Sadie, I don't think I could do what you are doing. You really are amazing.


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl

Sadie,

You are unbelievably strong and self possessed to be able to pick out pictures and music. You must be truly reconciled with what is happening. I admire you more and more for your courage and strength. Thank you for you grace and beauty. I hope that your journey is pain free and that you are surrounded by love and support the entire time.

Sam,

 

Thank you so much for everything...for relaying your and Suzi's conversation, for being there for her. I KNOW it was very comforting for her to have you to talk to.

I also know it really helps that there is someone that she can count on to let us all know what she is doing, how she is doing and all that she is experiencing.

I appreciate it very much.

 

 

Dear Sadie,

 

I am so deeply moved by your courage, Suzi. I only wish I could give you the physical strength that you given me...emotionally... through your genuine love and caring since we have all come to know and love you, Dear Friend.

 

What a beautiful thing...that you are doing for all who love and adore you. I know I'm not alone when I say that I only wish we could stand by your bedside. I'm sure you feel us there, along withyour loved ones/other very special friends.

I love you Suz...

 

Susie
