During the night, the world lost an incredible human being and dementia advocate. Personally, I lost a very dear friend, and I have no doubt her family and closer friends will be even more devastated than we are in my house. Susan was one of my heroes, and I will miss her presence in life until the day I die.
My condolences go to her close family and friends. Susan died at home, surrounded by her family telling and showing through their acts of love how much she was loved. Her Memorial page for online condolences book is here.
Susan was one of the first members of Dementia Alliance International, and for many years, joined the online ‘Richard Support Group’, Often, she was the reason others felt empowered to live more positively in spite of dementia, and inspires me personally to keep fighting for our human rights and for our dignity and inclusion as equals in this world.
Thank you Susan, for being one of the brightest stars I have ever know. The world and especially your family have lost an amazing woman, but your legacy will live on forever. It has been a great privilege and honour to have known you.
