JO SUSAN HOLLIFIELD DAUGHERTY
June 2, 1942- July 28, 2011
It is with much sorrow that I have to write this blog post. Yesterday morning, one of my very best childhood friends, JO SUSAN HOLLIFIELD DAUGHERTY (Susan or SuSu to me) passed away peacefully--after a long battle with Breast Cancer. You may remember that I wrote a blog the first of June on "Perseverance" about Susan. Click HERE to read that post. Susan has fought her battles for several years--and has had some good and some bad times. Recently, she truly did 'rally' ---and I thought she would be around much longer.

Susan gave all three of us a gorgeous photograph album in 2009 ---with pictures from all of our trips together. In my album, she wrote this for me: "For my dear friend, Betsy. I will forever treasure these memories of our 'Getaway Gang' trips. Love you, Susan"

Have a great weekend---and hug the ones you love. I am taking a couple of days off from blogging and commenting. See you Monday!
