Sad News

Yesterday when I got home from school I received some very sad news. A dear friend and High School volleyball teammate, Susan Smith Dallas, passed away Sunday night. At this time, all we know is that it was a heart attack, she had developed a heart issues after birth of her son.

Our mothers were friends growing up, and we always knew of each other - but not until our Jr and Sr year in high school did we really connect. She was a warm, friendly, kind person with one of the best laughs ever. She attended Bradley University, while I was in college I saw her for sure one time every year when Southern would travel to Bradley for our VB match. She often had some type of goodie for me. Very Thoughtful - does not even come close to describing Susan. At her wedding, she and her husband had one of the most entertaining first dances ever, all the guests were impressed with their tapping ability. What a sad loss for us, but I trust God has a plan and was ready to use her in other ways.
I can be confident that she is with the Lord, for that I am grateful.

Please pray for her family.
She leaves behind a husband, son, brother and many friends. Susan never knew a stranger - What a blessing she has been to so many people.
