We had a tragedy in our little town last night when a vibrant member of our arts community was struck by a car and killed. That happened in the midst of the last Monday Night Live event that takes place once a month with live music, food, dancing in the street, and artists of all ilks mixing and mingling and having a grand time.
When something like that happens, it makes us stop and think and say thanks for what we have.
In my books and on my author blog, I like to celebrate strong women, and so I celebrate that strong woman. Despite the pain and limitations of MS, she always had a smile for everyone she met and a genuine concern for the pain and challenges that others faced.
The last thing she said to me last night was how much she enjoyed reading my latest book, One Perfect Love.
She was one of my biggest fans. I will miss her greatly.
If I could figure out how to add a picture, I would share her smiling face.
Rest in Peace, Suszanne
