Saddened to hear of Susan's passing. I have fond memories of our kind neighbor and friend many years ago when our children were young. My sincere condolences to the family.

My last photo with my mother with all of the siblings together.
Mom was a great storyteller. She could articulate things that happened before so clearly because I truly believe that she was always very present in the moment. She absorbed what was happening around her and was a very intense listener.
I always observed from a young age how she engaged with people and was empathetic towards others. This is something that I have done my best to absorb and carry on to others (while not always successfully). I imagine we all want to leave a mark and be remembered for what we´ve done and who we have influenced on this planet. My mother left her mark on me and I will never forget that for as long as I will live. May your soul dance for eternity on heavenly streets of gold. Your heart of gold still shines inside of mine.
