Susan was my study partner in the Tikkun Middot Project at Beth Emet. She was such a lovely, kind, thoughtful, intelligent woman. My deepest condolences to her family. May her memory be a blessing.

Sorry I never got to meet Susan . She sounds like someone I would have enjoyed knowing. I enjoyed hearing about the Beth Emet connection, her spirituality, interest in the arts, love for her son, nephews and nieces , siblings . Her own parting words that were read aloud were so beautiful, wise and brave. All my love to you and the family, I'm sure her memory will be a blessing. Michelle
