Linda Guarascio-Howard from DeKalb, IL

"I will miss you Susan, and hope you are now free of pain and with Ray. I have always admired you Susan for your strength and insight of world events and human interactions. You helped me through a challenging time dealing with my divorce, and inspired me to become active in politics including the Equal Rights Amendment.I most admire you for your sense of fairness and ability to forgive. You were able to forgive people that took advantage of your good nature and helped themselves to your property. It's as if you could feel how desperate they were but at the same time felt compassion. I however, have not mastered this trait.I am sure you know how wonderful Michelle and Courtney are and their beautiful sisters and families. I believe that your life was blessed and your last days enriched by their consistent visits and unconditional love. I will miss seeing you laugh and have fun with your chosen family and friends."
