Our “sunny Susan” as Sue Harley said. As I read through the comments posted after Margaret’s heart-wrenching report of your passing, I am struck by the impact of your too-short life.
Your verve, your vivacity, your joy and love for the adventures of art in all forms shine throughout the comments of your CADANC family. We met you at seminars and paint-ins, at the founding of chapters and the saving of them. Through all that, your warm and welcoming smile, your firm belief that we could ALL do this thing you loved – to paint, to sculpt, to share, to color outside the box and still have something beautiful to enjoy.
Your leaving caught us all by surprise. Surreal, said Vivian and she was so right. Your leaving has left our hearts broken, knowing we will miss the sunshine of your smile. Our chapter will go on, but there will forever be an empty spot at the table where your smiling face would be.
I will close with this quote from Trish: You were truly a force of nature – fun, fearless, adventurous, talented, hardworking, smart, and a friend.
A true treasure.
Susan, once again you pave our way, and we will see you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
We love you, Your CADANC family
