A very brave lady has left our lives to join all of the other angels who watch over us every day. We love you mom, forever and always and we cherish all the kindness, wisdom and love you instilled in everything you did. You battled Multiple System Atrophy (Parkinsonism) with a grace and determination that was inspiring and heartbreaking to witness. We are ever so grateful for the incredible support of our dad, who went above and beyond every day to support you at home. Your caregivers are some of the most caring and beautiful people whom have touched our lives. We will miss you and you will remain in our hearts. May it always be known that Susan Giles was an amazing mother, wife, gramma and friend. We love you.
