|Although no words can take away the loss that we feel, please find comfort in knowing that there are so many that think about you. Our Spirit is always here if you need us Susan.|
"Hi, Susan. : ) I was thinking about you this morning. Trying to remember your birthday. For some reason May Day flashed in my memory. I guess I was a couple of days off.
I miss you, Susan. In more ways than I can begin to explain. If it's one thing I've learned in this life, it's the following. We are so busy in this life, ...as we turn our head back to look, we ask the following. Where did the time go?
A lifetime seems to pass by in an instant. As we feel the gust of wind pass by, someone close to us leaves. Why is it that only then we mourn? The value of friendship seems to appear bigger than life during a moment like this. The first word we ask after being informed is, "Why?"
I have learned to be more appreciative of those who accept me in to their life. To call me a friend is heart warming in itself. So much that I have learned to mourn less of those who are past and be thankful for the time they spent with me.
I'll never forget how you enriched my life, Susan. For that, I will always be thankful. God Bless You. I know we will meet again. That by itself keeps a smile on my face.
"It's been 2 years now since that surreal afternoon when it appeared you had left us. As the shock wore off over the following days, we were filled with grief and sadness over our loss.
Now, 2 years later, we have discovered, anything we may have lost was not that important. The important things you gave us are still very much alive. Your love, friendship and support are still there whenever needed to help us face our worldly challenges.
Your efforts during your journey here on earth to the "World's Best Mom" and my best friend will live on as long as we do. I hope we can pass on your gifts to others as effectively as you did to us."
... has it really been two years since your passing? You are still so missed... there is still an enormous gap where you should physically be. Your presence remains strong... we can still hear your beautiful laughter, still see your amazing smile. We love you dearly. x x x"
"Dear Ryan, Kristen, and Gene - I was Susan's best friend all through grade school. At Sandburg, we had different friends and activities, and without email and social media, we lost touch with each other through the years. I am only learning about her death now because I saw her upcoming birthday on April 28 and clicked on her Facebook page. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful best friend. I lived up the street about a block on Richard (before your grandparents/in-laws bought the house on Carriage Trail). Our families didn't have a lot of money, and our houses were small, but we always had a good time together at the swimming pool trying to get tan using baby oil (I'm paying the price for that now!), and dancing in Susan's basement to the Beatles and to other British rock bands of the sixties. Your mom got a Princess phone for Christmas one year that she got to have in her own room. We would talk on the phone for hours! I'm sure her parents got really tired of hearing us babble! I'm going to post a few photos of her from the early days. I hope you enjoy them. If you'd like to connect with me on Facebook, I would welcome the connection. I am so sorry to learn of her death - and very sorry that I hadn't seen her in such a long time. It sounds like she had really made an impact with her radio work - besides being a wonderful wife and mother. May God bless her and you."
"Well Susan..Its been a long year without you, Matthew (aka) Justintime he is using his real name now and I did a show in remembrance of you, and what you meant to all of us, I even wore the bracelet you had sent to me, we laughed and cried, but most of all, we remembered how you cared for us and others and was always willing to help anyone at anytime. You are forever missed and loved my Dear Friend!!"
"This past year has been full of changes for me, honey. I wish you had been here to talk to about them. I think of you very often and miss you very much. Of all the people I've met through my relationship with Revolution Radio, my friendship with you is one of my most cherished. I will never forget you, your calmness when things were chaotic or your incredibly wry sense of humor. Much love, Catt"
"I know this is Susan's page, but on behalf of her family, I just wanted to take a moment to pay tribute to all of you for your very thoughtful words and memories. They have been a source of great comfort to myself, Kristen and Ryan. Her spirit and influence lives on. I wish I could convey how much she loved all of you at Revolution Radio. Your friendship and your mission made her final year one of the most rewarding times of her life. We will be visiting her grave Sunday, and I will be sure to pass on your memories. But I have a feeling she already knows. Blessings to each of you and your families,"
"well its been a year now since you left,I felt you today Ace,I love and miss you my friend, booboo blue was asking about you. send the world a lot of peace and love , would you do that for me ,,, it be a JOY ,you hear me Gal. much love your friend GerrBear and Booboo Blue"
"I know you will be listening tonight, Susan. I feel your presence often and especially today. Dorrie and I will be doing a Special Show on "Matthew & Dorrie Time" for the friendship you brought into our life and the memories we can still visit. I know we will meet again in the future."
"Thinking of you today, Susan. Much love on your birthday and every day."
"Happy Birthday,Susan! I'm sure your new life has brought yet another smile to your spirit. Your spirit and wisdom always brought a smile to my face and cheerfulness to my heart. I know you are doing well and thankful for your visits. All I ask is that you schedule any future visits during the time in this life when I'm not busy with something else.
I love you, miss you and am thankful you are still in my life. : )"
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSAN!! YOUR MISSED AND LOVED SOOO MUCH!! SAY A GOOD WORD UP THERE FOR ME, WILL YA? LOVE YOU, Dorriebar"
"Susan i love u. Dr Sharma is my dr for 15 yrs i spoke to him. You had a very rear case. You are greatly missed .your heart was golden. Kisses"
"In loving memory for all the people Susan touched"
"Miss you, Ace! We knew each other for a short time, yet you were so positive and wonderful every time we got to connect! I miss you and you are gone too soon!!! Wish we could have done that show together... I'm in tears... My heart goes out to your family and friends... RIP, you wonderful, wonderful soul."
"I will always remember Susan as someone with a Good Heart, Strong Spirit, Kind Soul and my Best Friend. I, along with our daughter Kristen, and our son Ryan, will be forever grateful for the kind words, thoughts and prayers that have been expressed here. Additionally, I want to thank everyone at Revolution Radio for making Susan a part of your family. She truly cherished the opportunity she was given and the relationships that developed.
Her body was laid to rest yesterday but her spirit remains alive and well in all the people she touched. The flowers that were sent are gorgeous.
Although emotionally difficult, I was compelled to pay a Tribute at her final service which included recounting her time with Revolution Radio. Based on some of the responses I received after the ceremony, I think the station gained a few new listeners. I'm sure she was pleased.
She always was a free spirited person that cherished individual freedom and the values expressed on the station. Her mother, father and son were all Military Veterans that proudly served their country. She was proud to be a part of getting your message out and providing the listeners with the truth.
Thank you all for your support and prayers during this difficult time and sharing with us in the celebration of the life of a beautiful lady."
"The last thing she said to me was Your my Hero and truth be known I think she was mine. She was all ways showing her good side and made people feel good around Rev. radio. There will all ways be a place in my heart for her."
"Susan - Through the years I have watched you come out of your shell and open up. You were also the mediator to many conflicts and the supporter of many projects. I will miss you saying "hi RyaN" in chat and me returning "hey Susan" with most not knowing WTF who we were talking to. I know you will be a protecting Angel of many that loved you and I know you are in P3ac3. See ya Soon - R3"

"Ace..... We miss seeing your nickname in our chat room, and our heart aches, knowing that we will never have another day to chat with you. Still shocked at your unexpected, and sudden departure, you imprinted upon us, your love, friendship, kindness, and compassion that will forever stay with us.
CinSue and Grog... aka... Cindy and Greg"

"A message to an Angel on Earth who has been called home for reasons as yet unknown to us. You really loved everyone, Susan. A heart bursting with compassion and empathy who blessed FreedomSlips Revolution Radio with her sheer wondrous presence. You were always there for so many of us. I shall cherish the conversations we shared for always. You have commenced the next amazing journey of your life, reunited with your Sister and Parents. For Gene, Ryan and Kristin, much love to you and know that you are supported through these challenging times. And Susan... promise us one thing, Angel... open those beautiful wings and fly... Willow x x x"
"The Journey Forward
She has journeyed forward
on makeshift raft
attempting to confirm the mysteries
we were as radio family
in collaboration to uncover
My friend and producer
we shared air time together
giving secrets freely as offering
to the many we probably
would never even chance to meet
How fragile and strange
the winds of fate
forcing all to dance uncertain journey
Never do we know when day will fade in culmination
for final climax
sun setting horizon
pastel skies claimed by lavender night
unfolding stars in diamond clutter
I never expected to say goodbye
at least this earlier
nor in such quick fashion
there was yet so much for us to do
in revelation of truth
Our work really had just begun
only to be cut short in effort
Those left behind the myriads
witness to your subtle kindness and inquisitive demeanor
will miss you
lives obscured by force in change
In passing we shall cherish
the recollection of moments
shared in transition
Fly on friend until that time
we're reunited in joyous celebration
having accomplished all that we had promised to do
one day we’ll rediscover smile
partaking in the embrace that eludes us now"
"I didn't have the chance to get to know Susan, but have heard nothing but wonderful things about her from the persons at the radio station Susan was involved in. She will certainly be missed, and may she be blessed throughout all time..."
"I miss you diva! If you get a call from me remember to "add to" instead of accept. Wouldn't want to put heaven on hold! Peace be with you Susan."
Although I only knew you briefly, you were kind to me and had such a sweet voice and spirit. You will be missed. Be blessed."
"Aristotle said "You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor." - Susan had both
I will miss you and I am so grateful for having known her. Thanks for the laughs Susan."
"I was very shocked to hear you're gone, Susan. I put on the beautiful bracelet you sent me for Christmas and will wear it awhile to remember you. I'll pray for your family as I know this will be extremely hard for them to bear. ~ Aurora""
"Just a few words to Susan's family and to all of us that knew her also as "Ace". I only knew Ace online. Susan was pleasant, had a generous heart, and truly wanted to make change for the better.
I was shocked to hear of her passing. My condolences to everyone, but most of all to her family. For me, it was a pleasure and honor to be a part of her life.Even in small ways we all touch each others lives. Susan will be missed by many including myself! God bless. Tangie"
"Im not really good at this type of thing. All I can say is I miss you Susan. Lots. And Im going to miss you for a long time. ;-("
"Thanks for always being sweet to me. Especially when i was sad.i knew could always call & chat with you & we would end up laughing. I love you. Another Angel got her Wings ! KISSES"
"My candle is blue. This passing weighs on all of our hearts as we never felt we said an adequate farewell. Susan was shy and pretty. What I remember about Ace is that she was always there ~ true blue. In the heart there is a function where we pave the way to the end of our road. Here we can see, death is not a bad thing. My heart and deepest sentiments go to her beloved pet and her partner in life named Gene. I am sorry for the loss of the mother to her children. For them I will grieve. With all due respect to Ace, It's best to die young and stay pretty. ......see you soon."
"I just wanted to tell you how much I love you and am going to miss you. I was honored to get to know you and become part of your family. I will never forget all time that Ryan and I got to spend with you. You truly were an amazing, beautiful and kind woman. You have impacted me in so many ways and for that i am grateful. Thank you for always being there for Ryan and I and loving us unconditionally. We have all had so many good times and good laughs together. This world has suffered a huge loss of an amazing mind and voice. I will never forget you, I love you dearly Sue. Rest Peacefully Beautiful.
Love Roxy and the girls"

"You are one of the most beautiful souls I ever had the pleasure to know, you where a sister,adviser and confidant and friend to me, and for that I will always be grateful. I will miss talking to you every night, how we laughed and cried, and talked about everything under the sun, and then some. As these tears roll down my face, I now know what having a broken heart feels like. You will be missed dearly, and I know you will look upon all of us. God Bless You, on your new journey. Love always... Dorrie"
