    Hello Friends,

    I don't post here much anymore but still check in to read from time to time. Yesterday I thought I would send a FB msg. to SuziDrums and arrange a chat, as it had been quite a few months since we'd talked.

    I was horrified to read a post from her son saying that Nov. 28 she was admitted to the hospital for back pain. They were told she had cancer and that it didn't look good. Only 3 days later she passed away.

    I am still in shock and grief and am having a hard time expressing what a colossal loss this is to all who knew her.

    Suzi, your heart, your spirit, your enthusiasm for life despite multiple tragedies, your intelligence and insight, AND your razor sharp humor will be missed more than I can communicate.

    I wanted to arrange a meet-up with you, Dagney, Cha Ching, and anyone else who could make it near LA.

    I was just a few weeks too late.

    Elder Etta, Aude, and Zeb, Thanks so much for your condolences.

    I bumped up a post from 3 years ago where I found out that Suzi had left the cult. I studied with her in the late 1960s when we were both still teenagers. She progressed to baptism and soon afterward I married and moved away when I was only 17.

    I only saw her once in the mid-1990s. At that time we were both still believers, married with two children each. However, soon after our visit we both had horrible divorces and moved several times and so lost touch again.

    Imagine my surprise when we found each other on this site.

    I'm so sorry 3rdgen! I just read your thread about how you reconnected with Suzi after all those years. So sad for you to have spent so little time together after she left the Borg and sad for her sons to have lost both parents now. My thoughts are with you 🌹

    Sorry for your loss. It is difficult to stay in touch with those that are a distance and a life time away. But good to remember what you experienced together. It says a lot about both of you.
