Reading this made me feel very sad... I knew Susan pretty well in junior high and have fond memories of her to this day.  I remember her playing the lead in our 9th grade one act play and she was very good.  From the first time she picked up the script it was like the role was made for her.  May she rest in peace.

Susan and I went to school from kindergarten on (3rd & 6th Ave schools in Pine Hill) will always have fond memories of her. I remember her birthday party in the 6th grade down in the basement. First time we ever played records and danced! Her good friend, Betty Ann Caldwell, moved to Runnemede or there abouts and went to Triton H.S. for 7th grade on, so sadly I never saw her again...hey Betty Ann wherever you are!

R.I.P. Susan Stone....you were cool!!
