To all of Suellen's beloved family. I've known her since we were both about 8 years old. I met and played with her when we both lived in Mexico. Both of our families moved to Auxvasse and we continued our friendship through high school. Suellen was a loyal, fearless friend. She was beautiful inside and outside. I know she's watching her loved ones from Heaven. I'm sorry I won't be at her visitation. I live in Ohio now and just found out today. God bless you and yours. ðŸ™ðŸ» - Jane Adams Flynn Lynch
