    dear Roy I am deeply saddened by Susan’s death. Though I did not know her, I followed her blog, and yours, with awe at the honesty and clarity expressed therein. I am sad for you and her sons. I know there is nothing to say to make it better yet I want to say how much she touched my life, gave me hope that there is such a thing as conscious living and dying. May you be held in your grief by the love of many. respectfully, Janice
