Sue & I became friends through our Fathers who were friends. As life happens, we did not see each other much after high school but kept in touch by letters, usually at Christmas wondering where the year went.    Her 2 children were a lot younger than mine. She became a school social worker for Janesville area where she lived and I believe she worked there 35 years before her health problems prevented her from working. She was inspirational with her fight with several battles with cancer.

The last time I saw Susie was when her family was camping on the Willow River near us. We invited them over for Supper and was enjoying a wonderful conversation after dinner while her children were in the TV room watching "Ghost busters". It was storming out and they made some comment about camping in the tent during storms when all of the sudden lightening hit our house! It knocked out everything connected to the house wiring. We all saw balls of fire in each of the directions we were looking in! Amazingly, we did not have a fire but also didn't have lights and everthing plugged into the electric had to be replaced.   That was the last time she visited with me.  I sure do miss her.
