Message:  I believe that Doug was saying what many of us have felt in our hearts.

It is impossible to have known Mickey and Susan, and not have known the special love that they shared. It is also remarkable how Susan shared the love we all felt for her husband. At the last two Gatherings, those who were there developed that same love for Leah, Laura, Chris, Stephen and Joe.

Susan is still a beautiful lady and we all are so happy that she has found someone within her faith that she can love and enjoy in the years to come.

Doug and I had talked, after his visit in Springfield last year, of how hard Susan worked to keep the farm and family together. He said that he tried to keep up with her, but it was impossible. In his post he spoke of her making coffee for him, which was special as nobody in her family drinks coffee, and the other things that she did to make him feel welcome in her home.

At Gathering III, she did her best to put on a happy face and to enjoy what was going on, but it wasn't easy just eight months after losing Mickey. At Gathering IV, last year, she came early and stayed late, she and the girls provided us with some great harmony and she shut down 155 on at least two nights. It was a special time for all of us who were there.

Does Doug feel love for this lady? Damn right, and so does every man and woman who rock on this porch. She deserves all the happiness that comes her way. We all look forward to meeting Jim, he must be something special too.
