She was a great person to talk to & I will miss her posts on IHD.   She was always a support.  My thought go out to her family.

Oh my goodness, I have been away too long since my laptop is down.  I usually check on this and post while on dialysis myself.  I knew I had been away too long.  I am very sad, she had such a great spirit.  I used to love to read her comebacks and the banter bewtween her and many of us.  Bless her now and to her whole family.  It must be very hard for them right now.  Again, I amd sorry to hear this, and my heart and prayers go out to her family.

(alene writing)
Some have posted that they are rereading Goofynina's posts. For me, it is too soon. Susie has been taken from us way, way, way prematurely and it hurts. But, in a funny way, although gone she's not gone. Susie is immortalized in her posts. After a while, I too will go back and read her posts and there will be comfort there. Even now, I will run across a thread and find that Susie had the most recent post. Reading it will make me smile.

I am so very happy that she made it to Las Vegas.

I keep meaning to post how grateful I am to KitKatz and Victor. On Wednesday night I was sitting at home, sick with worry about Susie. Kit called the minute she got home from dialysis and said "Victor is willing to drive. Do you want to go up to Susie's?" I said "Really?? You're crazy." She said, "I know. Wanna go?" They made some calls to straighten out her work for the next day, and get someone to feed her pets, and were on their way. Victor is a machine, he drove the whole way without a break, and we arrived at 1:30 in the morning. Thank you so much K & V - I couldn't have made it without you - your strength made it possible to spend that last night with our Goofynina.

A beautiful Haiku BobT. I will miss Susie greatly and the great sense of fun she
brought to IHD. It's hard to come here at times like this, but I guess the information
and warmth I get will always be balanced by tragic news like this.

With unrelenting crescendo,
The symphony of a life replete with melodic progression,
hastens to its finale.
And a friendship that is ours to share,
with its "largos" and "allegros" moves ever-lasting;
onward, in sweet memories.

I didn't want to do this....I don't want to say goodbye to such a wonderful friend. But I've put it off long enough. Susie meant so much to me, as she did to many others. She was my bestfriend, we would spend hours on the phone and she always talked about me coming to live with her. I never took her seriously, but it would of been fun to visit her. Then Friday night when I talked to Karol and found out Susie passed on.  Karol told me that Susie had talked to Sam about me living with them...he agreed.  I had NO idea Susie had done that. She was so incredible, such a huge heart and so giving of herself. To open her home to someone she's only met once. But we had such a great connection and strong friendship.
I would call her and when Sam found out it was me on the line...he would yell out something like..."Hey baby, how ya doin?" I'd be like, "I'm good sweety!"  And Susie would go ballistic..."Watcha talkin to my man for, HUH? Oh I don't think so, He's mine!" It was all fun 'n games....God, I'm going to miss talking with her. I love you so much Susie!
Then last Thanksgiving she called me...she wanted me to give my family a thanksgiving wish from her. She told me to tell my family, "Gobble Gobble Gobble, thats from Susie!"  She had a wicked sense of humor...I miss her voice so much. Sorry for rambling.......I wish I had more to say but I cant type anymore. I just wanted to share those memories.
Susie, my friend....

I love you

I'm in shock!  I have been ill this month and thought I had pneumonia.  Luckily it was only Pleurisy but it has been causing me a great deal of pain.  I am so sad to learn Susie has passed away.  I can't believe it!

I didn't know her long or even in person but I could tell she was a wonderful person!  I will miss her!  This is so hard!   :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

During our Christmas exchange, I was lucky to get Susie as my secret Santa.  She, along with a little help from Sam, burned several Cd's with all of the old favorites.  I listened to the slow songs on my way to work this morning, crying like a baby.  When I heard this one, I knew I had to share with all of you.
This is for our girl.


"O-o-h Child"

(As recorded by Five Stairsteps)

O-o-h child things are gonna get easier
O-o-h child things'll get brighter
O-o-h child things are gonna get easier
O-o-h child things'll get brighter.

Someday yeah, we'll put it together and we'll get it undone
Someday when your head is much lighter
Someday yeah, we'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Someday when the world is much brighter.

O-o-h things are gonna be easier
O-o-h child things'll be brighter
O-o-h child things are gonna be easier
O-o-h child things'll be brighter.

Someday yeah, we'll put it together and we'll get it undone
Someday when your head is much lighter
Someday yeah, we'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Someday when the world is much brighter.

La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la.

Someday yeah, we'll put it together and we'll get it undone
Someday when your head is much lighter
Someday yeah, we'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Someday when the world is much brighter.

O-o-h child things are gonna get easier
O-o-h child things'll get brighter
O-o-h child things are gonna get easier
O-o-h child things'll get brighter
Right now.

I can't express how wonderful it was to finally meet your mom in person.   She is just as amazing as I knew she would be.  Wish you could have been here too.
