Celebration of Life for Susan Haughton

Real Estate Agent with Long and Foster REALTORS (703) 470-4545 0225085927

This is Susan’s brother, David. Paul and I wish to pass along our thanks, and the thanks of the entire Harlow family, for the overwhelming expressions of love and support we have received these past several days. Yesterday was as beautiful a day as we could have wished for to lay Susan to rest. It was a peaceful setting. Reflecting upon the scene at Quantico National Cemetery, where so many brave men and women are at rest, having completed their service to the preservation of this Nation and its freedoms, it was easy to be proud of Susan, knowing the contributions she too has made.

Paul and I, and the entire Harlow family, were grateful that Susan’s cousin, Bart Weakley, was available to perform the service. Bart is a Methodist minister now serving a church community in Onancock, Virginia. He and Susan were always, to my mind growing up, particularly close, being close in age, and it is unquestionably the case that there is no one whom Susan would have wanted to be there for her and her family in these circumstances than Cousin Bart. Bart spoke words of comfort and truth to the assembled, reminding us of the promise of Susan’s Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the hope – i.e., the confident expectation – of the coming Resurrection and the Life.

Bart’s special connection to Susan afforded him the insight to speak of humorous memories as well, which of course is hardly surprising to anyone who knew Susan and loved her. We thank Cousin Bart for his comforting words and presence, at what we know was also a difficult time for him. We thank Bart’s family, too, for having coming so far to support him and us.

With this message is a notice of the Celebration of Life for Susan, to which any and all are invited. It will be held at the King George Family YMCA on Sunday, March 24, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please note the request for an RSVP to mwilliams@family-ymca.org.

Again, Paul and I, and the entire Harlow family, thank you for your loving support and condolences. We hope to see as many of you as can make it at the Celebration of Life on the 24th. May God bless you.
