From Sherry Fox: “It is with deep sadness that I tell you of the passing of our previous NET support group leader, Suzanne Stinson. She was such a sweet, caring, gentle soul and her struggle with this disease the last few years was heroic. She would reach out to anyone even when she was so ill herself. Suzanne was ministering to others right up until the end. She will be so missed by all her fellow zebra friends, but is at peace now in heaven. No more pain or sorrow, only happy tears.”
