I wish to express my deepest condolences to the family. What a loss to all who were fortunate to have known her and to those who were family.

One of the fondest memories I will cherish about Susie is the time we flew to Ottawa from Tampa and the WestJet flight was diverted to Winnipeg . Upon arrival in Winnipeg at a bone chilling -56C in early January saw Susie dressed for Florida - and I talking to her about being very ill prepared. We shared a hotel room, laughed and shared stories as I rubbed her frozen feet. The biggest smile I saw on her was when Ray and Rita greeted us at the Ottawa airport.

With my eternal love and respect to the strongest woman I know.
