I was a sorority sister of Sue’s at Alfred, and was saddened to read of her passing.
Just as the sun will set then rise with each and every dawn, the souls of those who lived life well eternally live on… with heartfelt sympathy and love.
Susan, God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you and whispered “Come to Me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.” – Author Unknown
I know you are in a much better place now because God only pick’s the very best from his garden here on earth. May you rest in peace.
I was fortunate to come across your book Cosmically Yours, thanks to our dear friend Susan Mars. It is the most beautiful confession of, and tribute to Love that I have ever read. You are blessed to have found something that all of us search for. Thank you for your eloquent, and passionate revelations. Your poetry is truly wonderful!

Susan was my soul sister and I loved her very much. We shared the same birthday and we always enjoyed it! She went to college with my brother and when I met Susan for the first time … we became friends immediately. I have watched and learned from her as she became a more beautiful person every day. Susan was a spiritual healer and speaker. She consulted for various local companies and gave many talks. She was ahead of her time. Susan self-published in 1989 the book entitled, ‘Cosmically Yours’ Visual Reflections by Eva Marie Sakmar. *Greater Arts of Rochester 1st place award for “Cosmically Yours”. May she rest in peace, comfort and love. http://www.writers.net/writers/25650 and http://www.linkedin.com/in/susanmarygardner
