After the woman's death, her cherished cat, Susie, was sent to the Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center in Maryland, along with this touching message for whomever would give her a new home:
"Dear friend, thank you for adopting my friend, Susie," the pet owner wrote in one of the final moments of her life. "[...] I enjoy her company. She is a good snuggler, but she likes to be the boss. She enjoys being petted. She spends much of her time on my bed, but always seems to know where I am. I hope you enjoy Susie as much as I have."
