Susan,

Please accept my condolence for your loss at this time- I have always appreciated my association with you and appreciated you as a professional as well!
My husband has always supported me and allowed me to "BE" in my own way- always believing in and supporting me. My impression of you and Ross is of the same kind of support- and always supporting you! What lucky women we are!!
Please know that I have been thinking of you and the time that we worked together.
My prayers are with you and you family- be at peace!
