To Our Influencers Friends and Family:
Suzan McKenzie, our dear friend and wife of Pete McKenzie, has gone to be with the Lord.  Six months after being diagnosed with brain cancer, she passed away quietly on Wednesday, August 2, 2017.  Suzan was surrounded by Pete, her children, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, and close friends of the family.  Pete said of Suzan that she lived a great life and died a great death.  She affected us all because she loved greatly, and those of us who knew her personally loved her greatly.
As we mourn the loss of this dear woman and share Pete and the family’s sorrow, we are reminded through occasions such as this of the joy of having our Savior Jesus waiting for Suzan to greet her as she entered His kingdom, and her eternal home.  We are reminded that death will not have its victory over Suzan, or the relationships we shared with her, for we will be seeing her again.
My last words to Suzan were to say to her,  “I’ll see you later,”  knowing that “good-by” was not accurate.  She cheerfully responded that she knows it, and will be waiting.  Join with me with prayers of thanksgiving for Suzan’s life, and for her precious husband Pete, as he continues to carry the torch for Jesus.
