Not sure what to say?

It is with great sadness that I learned of the death of Susan. I share your loss and extend my heartfelt sympathy.

Susan was a fantastic coworker and writer at TWoP. I'll miss her and never forget her.

Susan ruined most things for me. And I mean that in a good way. I'd come to her with whatever books or movies I'd enjoyed and, more often than not, she'd quickly point out about 22 plot holes or weak plot devices or blatant inconsistencies, usually within about five minutes. Perhaps I would have been excused for not liking her because of this, but I thought it was great.

Susan and I went to Bradley at the same time. I remember her as being quiet, but also very witty. On more than one occasion, she was able to cheer me up when I really needed it with a quip or two about the Midwest. For that, I'll always be thankful.Pleas know that she will be missed...

So sorry for the family's loss. The death of a family member, especially a young one, is truly a distressing time. May cherished memories of Susan bring light during this dark time. May the thought of knowing that family and friends share in your grief bring you a measure of comfort. (Proverbs 17:17)

I worked with Susan off and on for the last 10 years of her Westat career. I always appreciated her keen wit, and encyclopedic memory for work details. She was a delightful colleague, and a loss to Westat when she moved to the West Coast. We miss her.
