Louise said it all so well. Sniff sniff for me as well. I appreciate Susan so much for all of her inspiration, humor and love she shared especially through the BALC, all the while having to go through so much in her personal life. I was so glad she shared Sally with us. It makes you want to make the most of each day. Thanks to you Brenda for such a wonderful post and thank you to Susan for being in our lives.

Brenda, you blew me away with this tribute! Thank you so much for keeping all of us inspired, and for being our friend. When I saw that kitchen towel, I knew the special lady I had to give it to, especially since our alumni class if filled with the most vibrant group of girls ever. Much love to you, dear lady. You made my day! Thank you so much. I can't wait to get this yard in shape so I can add some more mixed metals to my line. Time for a change of color! xoxoxo

I had the pleasure of meeting Susan in person about a year ago. We live in the same metro area, but prior to that point we were just cyber acquaintances. She saw I was doing a craft show in her neck of the woods and graciously stopped in to say hello. Even in that short meeting, I can tell you she was just as kind, funny and charming as you imagine she is. What a well deserved post of recognition for a truly nice person. :-D

Maria Clark

Such a nice post about a great on-line friend.

Susan, I didn't know all these things about you. You are always smiling, for sure. I love your garden. That bracelet is spectacular. I am sorry for the passing of your sister, Sally. I know that you made her last days so much better with your visits. You are very inspiring. What a nice surprise box for B'Sue and the gang! Wonderful post, there is so much learning, sharing, love and generosity among the B'sue group! It is truly unique. I'm so proud to be a part of it and know all of you.

Dear Brenda, You all make me smile every day.
Thanks for sharing this story about Susan. She's been an inspiration and a blessing through the whole challenge class time and her spirit of carrying on through the deepest sorrow has really motivated me to just keep on - even if it's only for one more day.
Enjoy your chocolate!
