I fondly remember Susan Schaefer as being friendly to all, vivacious, and popular. Anyone who knew the Schaefer family thought very highly of them. Her family lived on W Tampa Circle and mine on E Tampa Circle. Many of the kids from the Circles knew each other. Condolences to all her surviving family members and special condolences to her sister Linda who, of all the family members, I knew best in my youth.

I am very sorry for the loss of your beloved Susan. She was my good friend throughout junior high school at Madison until we went to different high schools. My thoughts are with you all.
