MOUNT AIRY - More than anything, Susan G. Hornick wanted to live for her children, to see them through their growing years.That wish gave her the will to fight against cancer for nearly two years.At 4:45 p.m. Monday, though, the 33-year-old mother of Danny, 12, and Ashley, 5, lost her battle."Her body just gave out on her," said her friend, Cathy Davis. "She fought so hard to be here with those kids. She was so involved in all they did."Carol C. Yocum, Hornick's friend and pastor of Calvary United Methodist Church, echoed those sentiments.
