    To the family and friends of Susan Furay: I am very sorry to learn of your loss. As a close friend of one of Edward and Susan's daughters, AJ, for well over a decade, I have certainly developed a strong sense of who Susan was even though I never had the pleasure of meeting her. I've heard so many stories --- some of the good, some of the not-so-good/sad, and plenty of the funny. AJ just loved sharing stories that showcased her mom's interesting perspective on life, adventurous spirit, and wicked sense of humor, all of which seemed to buoy the family along through some of the darkest times, as well as bring them joy. As AJ tells these stories, she often ends up laughing so hard she cries ... we all do. And AJ is just such a very caring and loving person with an amazing penchant for dealing with/facing complicated truths --- a family trait, it seems, and testament perhaps to Susan's love and example. Through knowing AJ and having the honor of being her friend through the years, I am fortunate to find more evidence of an awesome truth that we sometimes doubt during the toughest times: that even though life and people are complicated and long-term illness is brutal, love reigns in the end. Rest in peace, beautiful Susan! Finally, rest in peace. Your spirit, humor & strength live on in the children, grandchildren, and other loved ones you leave behind. With deepest sympathy ...

    My dear Edward. I heard this morning that Susan had passed away. I am so sorry for your loss….and so we feel that Susan is part of our family too. She may not know how often her life story has been an inspiration to other family members and how her dear husband championed her image as a talented nurse, exciting wife and affectionate mother. Your story Edward informed all of us how to see our fate and how to live it well. As Richard said in his note we are here for however you may need us. I want to be able to see you at the viewing and to be at the funeral. Please let me know what the arrangements are so I can be the best support at this time. Wanting to hear from you as soon as possible. Your friends—Jai….
