Susie affects people on earth in two ways: she communicates with them from the Inbetween, or she does nothing except exist in their memories. Susie’s death and absence function to bring characters together and form connections that would not exist if not for her death. Also, even though Susie is in heaven she is able to grow to a place where she can leave the living. By being with them she had a reciprocal relationship with them in many ways, from across the In between. This response can be found below:
