    So sorry for your loss! We really enjoyed the times we spent with Susan, and I wish we had made more of them happen. We’ll never forget the Vegas trip and getting to know Chris. I hope to meet his family some day! Susan always loved to brag about her sons and their families. May God give you strength and comfort in the days ahead and may you never forget the memories of all the good times you shared,
    Sincerely,
    Mike & Rita Maness

    So saddened to hear of Susan’s passing. I enjoyed my time working with her on Flockgen. She was so generous with her time and advice. And, she loved talking about her sons and grand kids. I still use the set of scavenger hunts she shared with my own nieces. They love solving the word/math problems and turning the house upside down searching for the next clue.

    I’m very saddened to learn of Susan’s passing. We worked together for South Central Bell in the Green Hills Office Building in the late 80s/early 90s. We had Jackson, TN in common. She was a fun person to work with and very smart. Your family has my deepest sympathy.

    I extend my heartfelt condolences to the Jeffries family on your loss. Death is never easy, and it pains our hearts. Our loving God Jehovah is aware of this and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; May you be comforted by his words during your time of bereavement.
