You are in my heart forever .
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, One belonged to him and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, He looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life, there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him, and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, You’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed You most, You would leave me.”
The LORD replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, When you see only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.”

Susan F. (Geddes) Love, age 73 years, of Stoughton, peacefully passed away unexpectedly surrounded by family and beloved friends on Monday July 27, 2015.
Raised in Hingham, the daughter of the late Dorothy (Campbell) Geddes and H. Paul Geddes Sr., sister of H. Paul Geddes Jr. (Natick, MA) and niece of the late Jean Campbell, Mary Elizabeth Campbell and Raymond F. Campbell. A graduate of Hingham High School, Susan attended The Chandler School for Women in Boston and pursued a career in office administration. Soon after graduation, Susan married Robert Bruce Love (Weymouth, MA) and raised their family of four children in Stoughton: Merideth Scott Love (Hull, MA), Matthew Ryan Love (Weymouth, MA), Robert Sean Love (Nantucket, MA), and Michael Thor Love (New York, NY).
Blessed with an immense heart, a warm, caring, engaging personality, and a beautiful "gift to gab", she made friends wherever she went. She enjoyed the ocean and loved visiting her daughter Merideth and soon to be son in-law Jeffrey Shaheen, and "Grand Dog" Cisco at Nantasket Beach. She also regularly enjoyed visiting her son Sean and girlfriend Shannon and her "Grand Dog" Cash on Nantucket Island. Susan was fortunate to have enjoyed world travel with her daughter and friends. Constantly surrounded by family and friends, she shared her caring ways, nurturing soul, and loving heart. Susan was a spit fire. Bursting with energy, full of life, she loved to be around people. She was a straight shooter, as honest as it gets. She was full of laughter, and hilarious to those who knew her. She had a way to laugh it off and move on with her day. She exemplified the true meaning of unconditional love. We have lost an amazing person, but have gained an angel.
She was awesome!

Dogs come into our lives to teach us about Love, They depart to teach us about Loss.
A new dog never replaces an old dog,
It merely expands the heart.
Gus you are already missed so much. We are devastated by losing you so soon. We hope you are watching over us and that you are having fun in Heaven. You will be furever in our hearts. We will see you again....
