The chances anyone here knows who she is are about nill. I thought this would be the best way since Susan was such a huge KC Chiefs and Royals fan.

An Air Force child born in France who called Kansas City her home. I met her 20 years ago when her family was stationed at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. I was active duty at the time.

Our careers took us in different directions but we always stayed friends. Good friends.

She changed my life forever and the way I thought about myself and other people. She gave me confidence. I loved her. Don't know if she felt the same but I think she at least liked me. That counts for something.

Susan was born on this date in 1962 and killed in a auto accident on I-470, March 16, 1999. She would've been 38 today.

I still can't believe it to this date. Hardly a day goes by I don't think of her. She was beautiful. She had charm. She had personality. She had it all.

God bless you Susan. I love you and miss you. And I'll see you in the next life. It might be a while though. I've got some kickin' left to do. You understand sweetheart. I know you would not want me to quit.

My heartfelt sympathy, for you, and those others, who were part of her life. This really puts things like football, election, etc. in a proper perspective. I hope everyone takes this as an opportunity, to tell those near and dear to you, how much they mean to you. Happy Birthday Susan.
