The one thing I know for certain is the love you have for your parents will stay with you forever. In time, your tears of sorry and broken heart will mend leaving you with priceless memories and peace.

    Scott, Suz – I’m so sorry for your loss. I have many good memories of you and your parents. You were great neighbors, thank you for adding to my life.
    In reflection, I admire the incredible patience your dad had with me – I was capable of making immense quantities of noise at all hours and he seemed to tolerate that with amazing grace.
    Peace be with him and with you.

  4. Suzi & Scott,
    Here’s flash from the past Easy Street – LA. So sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. Additionally, I was shocked to read in the Times that your mom is gone too. I ran into her a few years back and didn’t expect to read that. My family shares in my heartfelt wish that you will be surrounded by the love of family and friends at this time. May you remember the happy times and take comfort in knowing that he is no longer suffering. God Bless you, Sheri and the Jensen family
