There is so very much that can be said about Susan and the way that she chose to conduct herself as life threw curve ball after curve ball at her. However, I think she says it best herself in this mantra she posted on her About page:
All that survives after our death are publications and people.Words to live by. Peace be with you, Susan.
So look carefully after the words you write, the thoughts and publications you create, and how you love others. For these are the only things that will remain.
