Susan V (DeCoursey) Hawkins

April 4, 1936 ~ June 3, 2019 (age 83)
65 years ago this Thursday June 6 2019 my Parents said their wedding vowels. they were married 16 short years,  they had 8 children 7 living  1 in heaven when our father passed away due to cancer. They had bought a farm in Washington County outside the village of Lowell, Ohio hand raised over two dozen day old calves and taught their children through hard work you can have what you need. Family is your strongest link in this world and with God all things are Possible. Early this Morning at 12:10 with all seven of her children at bedside several Grandchildren  and greatgrandchildren  we were able to send her Home just in time to repeat her wedding vowels to the only man who loved her as much as her own Daddy, I will miss our mother she was my travel buddy anytime I was going somewhere she was game to go. But my Daddy has waited 49 years for his bride and I can no longer keep her here healthy and happy, God has a much better place for her, Daddy and Mommy always wanted a Horse farm thinking he has really got one ready for her. We prayed for divined healing thinking  you cant get any better than this want to thank everyone for their prayers and thoughts.
