Susan and I have known each other since our first day at UF, back in 1971. We were in Geology together and became fast friends. She and I both pledge ZTA sorority at UF and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding back in 1974. We were not as close as we once were, but we have remained friends all these years talking on the phone or on FB. She was one of my dearest friends and I will miss her greatly. I would have to say, most definitely, a devoted mother and grandmother. I admired her for her endless love for her family. May peace and strength be with her loved ones at this most difficult time.
