Psalms 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years, And if because of special mightiness they are 80 years.
May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together bring a smile and joy in your heart.

To Susan's family - Please accept my deepest condolences in the loss of your mother/grandmother. Although I only met Susan a handful of times, I knew her name well from my mother, Peggy Charren, who worked with her at Action for Children's Television. She was an important part of the ACT work. A few years ago, she was kind enough to meet with me to share artifacts from ACT. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
