Suzie Ayers(Richards)

We, being my mother and I, lived with Suzie and her husband Chuck when I was about a year old. Of course I don't remember this but I am bound to Suzie the way I am bound to my family. Her children are like my own long lost siblings. Suzie was somewhere between an aunt and a co-mother to me. 

When I think of Suzie I think of understanding and empathy. I think of her soft eyes and how she radiated love. How she loved me when I didn't love myself.
