I have not been here much or in BF in RWOL. I just found out that our Australien friend Suzanne past away on November 5.
This was her last post on FB on November 5.
As a low key way of celebrating my transplant anniversary I've posted chapter 9 of my novel 9 Little Steps on my blogHope you enjoy it.
She passed away that afternoon. We were FB friends and I was trying to contact her to come here to RA.
I don't know if you are aware of this.
Slow and steady never wins anything.
Thanks for posting this, Goo!
Truly sad news. She was such a great person and a strong-willed one that never gave up.
May she rest in peace!

Wow. I did not know that. Nor did I know she was Australian. For some reason I thought she was from New Zealand. Damn.
Short term goal: 17:59 5K
Mid term goal: 2:54:59 marathon
Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life. (I started running at age 45).
Not a dude
That is such a shame. She was a wonderful person who had so much positive energy. She will be missed.
Sad to hear that. She was always a bright spot on the forums and I looked forward to reading her posts.
2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race
Thank you for posting and letting us know.
Very sad news. May she rest in peace.

Oh no, that is the saddest news. I am so sorry to hear this. Thanks for posting, Goo
So sad to hear this, may she rest in peace.
I am so sorry to hear that! I knew she hadn't been around but had been picturing her busy writing, taking classes, biking, and swimming. What a loss. She was always so kind and so upbeat.

I'm so sorry to hear this. She had a wonderful energy and lots of enthusiasm. RIP.
RIP. She was such an inspiration and sounded so hopeful. So sorry to hear this.
This makes me so sad. She was such a chipper person on our team's fb page and in the dailies. Her poor family. She really wanted to be the longest transplant survivor (if I remember her old siggy correctly).
Thanks, Goo, for letting us know.
Sorry to hear that.. She used to post frequently on Penguins when I started and she is always so hopeful..
Thanks, Goo for letting us know..

I remember when she got here, uh... there. I'd always read her posts and imagine her Aussie accent. When l saw her name in this thread title, l thought, "Good... she made it here." This news is so sad.
She'll be with me on my run tomorrow.
"Good... she made it here."
If there is a heaven, this is what they're saying about suzielea.
