To Craig, Lucas and family:

Gord and I would like to send our deepest sympathies to you and your family at this very difficult time. I've not met your personally, however have heard lots of wonderful things from Trac and Andrew. I met Susan in Kingston when my sister Scoop and Susan were going through treatments together. We spent some memorable time, some laughter and lots some tears together. From the little time we did spend together it was obvious that she was an amazing, caring and loving person that will be greatly missed by so many.

With all our love, thoughts and prayers.

My deepest condolences go out to Susan’s entire family. We have lost someone who was very special, though I’m only confirming something you already knew. May your halls be filled with her wisdom and her infectious giggle for many years to come.

She giggled about going to Vegas – gambling and won something much more precious than money could buy. You were and always will be, in her heart Craig.

She revolved through this world, with pride and integrity. Everything was important to her, but nothing carried more pride than her only child Lucas and his Eeyore.

She was the kind of person that touched your life and you knew you were the one who was richer for it. Her gift was special and oh, so subtle. Thank-you God, for lending us one of your angles, it was my honor to have known her for 15 years.

We knew Susan from Chandos Lake where she and Carig built their dream home on the water. She impressed us a person who lived life to the fullest! She filled her days with: building relationships; packing them full of memories to share with many; creating gardens and maintaing an optomisitc and hopeful presence. Her love for Craig and Lucas was always evident and that will always be present for them to sustain them whenever they need it. We offer Craig and Lucas our condolences and prayers at this very difficult time.

Dear Craig,
You have been one of my most liked and respected colleagues for so many years. Susan’s courageous battle with cancer was something I followed with concern through patients, colleagues and occasionally through you.
Now that she is no longer suffering, I wish you peace and strength, after such a difficult journey. Please accept my heart felt condolences during this time of grief for you and your family.
