So very sorry to hear about Suzanne. What a joy it was to be her neighbor on the Setter Place culdesac! Their door was always open to the neighborhood kids. I will remember her as a sweet, extroverted, joy-filled lady with giant heart! She had a contagious laugh. Honestly, one of the kindest people I have ever met! Praying for the whole family.

I’m so sorry to hear of Mrs. Fornadel’s passing. My mom passed along her obituary. I still have the fondest memories of hanging out with her in the office when I was in high school. She laughed easily and was so filled with joy. I know she will be missed dearly. Sending prayers, Mary Beth (Corbett) Lupinski
