    To the Kindness Family my sincere condolences. Susan and I belonged to the same quilting guild and she attended several sewing classes with me. She was creative and a pleasure to spend time with. I am deeply saddened by her passing and will miss her. Cancer sucks!

    Our deepest sympathies to the Kindness family. Having only moved to the area recently we wish there had been more time to get to know her better. She was always helpful whenever I became stuck with a quilting project.

    I remember that family was so important to her. She was so thrilled to have her 3 grandchildren living close by and she loved having them come to visit.
    She has been an important part of my family and the memories we have of our times together are so precious. We remember her kindness, her sweetness, her enjoyment of the simple things in life. Her niece and nephews will miss her along with all of us.
    My condolences to my brother and nephews and their families.
    Love to you all,
