My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to David and family!! We were all in Mrs. Redman's sixth grade class at Hebron! I fondly remember Susan asking me to the Blackridge Civic Center dance. She was much taller than I was, back when we were 11 years old ! Later on I enjoyed riding motorcycles with her and her Dad. Each new entry seems to hit home much harder !!! God Bless!!

Dear Dave and Family, Although I only attended Penn Hills SHS for Junior and Senior years, I came to know Susan as a really vivacious and cheerful young lady. She always seemed to have a smile tucked away somewhere in her personality to share with others. Believe me when I say that I am deeply saddened over her passing. I will pray that God may bring comfort and consolation into your presence during this difficult time. Sincerely, Lew Clark.

To David and Family,
I was so saddened to hear of Suzy's passing. I remember her from 4th grade when she moved to Penn Hills with her family to a home just down the street from mine. I was delighted to have a girl my age in the neighborhood. We shared many common interests--horses and ballet among them, and we became fast friends. Over the years, we shared many experiences-- overnights, summer camp, books,.crushes (we were both infatuated with Bruce Weiter for a while) Whenever i think about growing up in our Blackridge neighborhood, she is there. May you find some solace in your memories.

Thank you every one for your kind thoughts about my sister, Susan. I and her family appreciate them very much. It is good to see some of the Penn Hills High crowd keeping in touch.

I am deeply saddened to learn Suzy has has passed and I send my deepest sympathy to David her children and family. She and I were inseparable during our junior and senior years. Savors on Friday night and Y dances on Saturday, Eat n' Park after work on a weekday nights. Cruising on the Harley and sailing in The Bahamas. She was a beautiful and spirited girl known By her bouncy ponytail and scotch plaid skirt. And now her fight with that dreaded disease is over. When I talked with her in April she told me of her desire spend her remaining time with her family and friends and not suffer more from additional treatment. She was courageous and thankful for the devotion of her beloved husband her children and friends. May she Rest In Peace.

It was a sad day for me when Suzy Eldridge went to heaven. I first met Suzy in Mr. Hoover's hour and a half study hall. We rarely studied. We spent most our time giggling and telling stories. During that study hall we had lunch and would meet Nancy Frank for lunch time fun. We called ourselves the Three Musketeers. What fun we had in high school! Suzy and I briefly lost touch going on to college, getting married, and building our adult lives. Fortunately,we reconnected and enjoyed our later years talking about those fun high school days, our children, and grandchildren. I will miss her dearly. Suzy was my best friend.
