    Did not know Susan-Ann at all, but condolences to TDKers who knew her as well as to her friends/family/kitties.

    Just saw this on fb, so very sad. Had fun chatting on TDK with her and grieved with her when she lost her Bailey.
    Her TDK name was FondaHonda because she drove a Honda and was fond of it!
    Rest in Peace, Susan.

    So sad to read of FH’s – FondaHonda’s passing. She was a big part of TDK some years back and kept us entertained with tales of her furbabies.
    Rest in Peace Susan.

    Feeling sad this morning at the loss of our TDK sister. Last year another TDKr fostered a wee orange kitten named Einstein. When Einstein was ready to be adopted, FH became his mama and named him Dempsey. I feel sad for Dempsey.
    I hope this post isn’t inappropriate; when tragedy strikes I feel sad and worried for the animals left behind.

    I well remember when FondaHonda/Susan welcomed young kitty Einstein/Bailey into her heart, home and life. Like so many of the TDK family, she and others worked together to help each other, give moral support, and make good things happen. She is and shall be missed. I pray for her soul, her family, and her furnabies.

    Sigh, I feel same Joan. Yes we grieve for loved one passed but also hurt for furry family left behind.
    From FB July 2015:
    sophie & dempsey

    They already love each other! The kitty keeps following Sophie and wants to play or cuddle. It’s hard to tell just how tiny the kitty is–a mere 2 lbs. in comparison to Sophie at 16.5 lbs. Day one with new kitty? Going well!

    Purry prayers for furry family’s future.

    I am so terribly sad at having heard this awful news yesterday. Through TDK meet-ups I was so fortunate to come to know Susan. The thing that I think I will remember most is her huge laugh.

    I am the member that fostered baby Einstein who was renamed Dempsey by Susan. My husband and I drove (in one day!) from Midland, TX to Ft.Worth to take our baby to Susan. I was so thrilled when she asked me if she could adopt him because I knew he would have such a wonderful life with her. Dempsey brought Susan so much joy and he absolutely adored her doggie,Sophie. The minute we put them together Dempsey became so excited. I’m pretty sure that he thought Sophie was his mom. And they became inseparable. Susan even told me that she was a bit jealous of Sophie because Dempsey liked her more than Susan. But once he became convinced that Sophie wasn’t going away he bonded with Susan and they had a wonderful relationship. He was the most loving little kitten and he made Susan so happy.

    Joan, it isn’t inappropriate to wonder about Dempsey and Sophie. I did the same thing. Today I was able to get in contact with Susan’s niece via FB. She told me that Sophie and Dempsey will stay in the family. For that I am so grateful. But they are not together and that makes me terribly sad. Susan’s brother took Sophie and his stepson took Dempsey. I know that Dempsey will be so confused and sad. They have both lost their home, their mama and now each other. I am praying that now that he is a year old that he will be able to adjust to a new life. The niece told me that they will both have wonderful homes. But pets grieve just as we do and I know this is a hard time for Dempsey and Sophie. Maybe if the family sees that they are so sad being apart they will be able to manage having both of them in the same home.

    Wiping away tears reading all the memories of Susan, I never had the pleasure of meeting her but knew her thru TDK and all the visuals put out there by our members. She will be missed by so many, her special furry ones, Dempsey and Sophie, her two legged family and all her friends.

    I remember FH, too, quite fondly. And, quite honestly, I’m angry that I just now found out that she passed a month ago–because of Facebook. That’s where everyone is now. I wish it had never been invented.
