Rob,Alex,Stephen and Jill, My sincere condolences to you all. As a good friend of Jill’s for over 40 years, I’ve heard many family stories and feel like I knew Susan well. Although I had only met her once, I remember her to be kind and easy to talk to, like I had known her for years. She was definitely taken too soon and I hope you can all find comfort in the memories you shared with her. May she Rest In Peace and watch over you until you all meet again. With sympathy, Bunny

To Rob, Alex, Jill and Stephen. I was so deeply sorry to hear that Susan had passed, still so young. When I first met Susan I loved her carefree style and sweet hippie vibe. The super funky loft where she and Rob lived only added to the cool factor! What I remember most about Susan is how she had a way of looking deep in your eyes when she spoke to you, which made you feel so included, and that she was listening to every word. Her spirit is alive in the beautiful memories she left behind. Rest in Peace, Susan - we will meet you again in heaven.

I was so shocked and saddened by Susan’s passing. I’ve known Susan as long as I’ve known Jill when we were still in high school. I still remember meeting Susan for the first time at Edith’s house on Belmont hill and thinking she was so cool. She definitely had that 60s hippie vibe! Over the years there were many great memories: the cool loft where she and Rob lived, the wedding in the loft, Thanksgiving in NH and of course the awesome adventure at the Adirondacks when Jill and I got lost and almost didn’t make it there. But mostly, I will always remember Susan for her warm welcoming smile, her laugh, and her ability to make you feel at home. May you Rest In Peace, Susan. And may you all find comfort in the good memories of her.

Rob, Alex, Jill and Stephen, I was so sorry to learn of Susan’s passing. I will always fondly remember the wonderful time up in the Adirondacks when the kids were babies. Well, except for the outhouse! I was not fond of that. How Susan and I chatted endlessly about babies, and I’m sure playing Trivial Pursuit was a part of our time there as well. On to NH. Susan and Rob were always wonderful hosts as Jill always brought some of “the girls” with her, and Susan was always happy to see us (you were too, Rob!) We had so many laughs. I think of Susan almost every time I eat pizza. When Jill and I were roommates in Brookline, she and Rob came to visit. We were heading into the North End of Boston to Regina’s Pizzeria-THE best pizza in the world, in case you didn’t know.When I asked for salt, Susan looked at me incredulously. Salt? Salt? On pizza? Ummm, yes…I’m Irish, I put salt on salt. She told me pizza was already salty. That always stuck with me, especially as I get on in years, and realize how right she was! When I first met Susan, I thought she was the coolest person ever. She and Rob lived in a loft in the South End of Boston. This was before lofts were a thing, people! They were a very hip couple indeed. Of course, Jill’s and the girls were invited to their wedding-held in the loft. SO cool, except that Renee are all of the really yummy dip and broccoli before the ceremony. That’s my story and sticking with it. I will keep my fond memories of Susan, and continue to strive for less salt with every slice of pizza I eat. Susan-may you Rest In Peace. Godspeed.

My dearest big sister Susan, I am so sad. I am heartbroken. We were separated at a very young age, you, Jill, and I would never live together again after the untimely tragic death of our beloved mother when we were only kids. Growing up apart was so very tough emotionally, but the joy and unbridled happiness you and Jill always brought to me when visiting me in New Hampshire was that emotional strength - the family bond - that never waivered. Through our family tragedy, you, Jill and I made the best out of what this "thing called life" made us bear. You were always so ebullient and always so outgoing. Your energy, intelligence and altruism is what made you the best sister any Dennis the menace brother could hope for. I will miss you forever. I will love you forever. Jill and I will see you in Heaven someday. You are gone way too soon my dearest sister Susan. Rest in Peace, you are loved. You are missed. You will be remembered forever. You are so loved. Peace be upon your sweet soul. Rest easy Susan. Jill and I love you so much. FOREVER IN PEACE.
