I am still in shock over Susan's death. I remember those years in OB working along side with her. As you can all imagine, never a dull moment with her around. Lots of neat memories she and I have made. We didn't get together since she moved to Olney but I wish I had seen her more often. I actually did try to find her house while I was in Olney officiating softball one weekend this past fall.

Prayers for you all, I remember her being just as funny as Christy, the few times I met her.
