Last year about 1:30 Christmas afternoon, I was checking my email when I got a message that had numbed me. Chelle wrote to tell me that Liquid had passed away the day before. I then posted the news here, then went to my in laws as my grand kids had more gifts to open.
When I returned home that day, I called Chelle to get the details, she told me what had happened. Over time, I had heard from other friends and family. I found that some of her family had been reading my tribute posts, even before Amias took charge of having people link their posts on Suzanne's blog.
The past week or so, I've been in contact with other bloggers and former bloggers who have been thinking a lot of her lately. Leesa left a message in the online guest book last week. Amias just left one today. Suzanne is still missed.
Michelle had asked me to send out a prayer request for Suzanne's family and I'm using this post for that. Suzanne left behind her parents, Jerry and Betty White, her son Campbell, daughter, Isabella, brother Greg, sister in law Ronna, and niece Maddy. Pray that they will have peace as they deal with this loss during the holiday season.
Campbell pops up on my Facebook page every now and again. It about tore my heart out this past Mother's Day when he simply posted "Mother's Day sucks for me this year." I had a rough time on the first Mother's day without my mom and I was 48.
And if you weren't familiar with Liquid Illusion, go on over and see the work of the one many of us miss terribly.
