  • I have many wonderful memories of Susan when we were in our 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. She was lively, fun and talented. Then life changed and we lost touch, but the memories remain. I’m so sorry she is gone.

    Mark, I send my caring thoughts to you and your family.

  • Mark,
    Susan can never be gone in our hearts. Her greatest gift to me came from her many canvasses. Susan taught me to look at life as a canvass, ripe for color and texture, always with that trace of gold.
    Love, Ann
