A Pebble in the Water

I was about to turn in for the night and thought I'd check my emails one last time.  One subject line stood out…"A Special Tribute to Susan 'Suze' Race."   I thought, " How kewl that Susan is once again being recognized for an outstanding contribution."  I opened the email and began to read it in excitement for what I knew would be a well-deserved honor.  My excitement quickly faded to shock and then, sadness.  Nothing could've prepared me for the news of her sudden passing earlier this month.

Susan E. Race was a genuinely delightful spirit that visited us for awhile.  Professionally, she was an awesome coach, powerful communicator, talented writer and exceptional teacher.  I loved talking with her because she always made me feel infinitely more joyful than I did when our conversation began.  I admired her as a colleague and loved her as a friend. 

When you drop a pebble into water, notice the ripples it creates.  Each ripple grows larger and stretches on and on.  In fact, it feels like the ripples will never end.  The pebble forever changes the way the water flows.  One tiny pebble makes a lifechanging impact on the water.

Like a pebble in the water, Susan touched many lives, making a significant and delightful impact on those she met.  Her local coach chapter in Philadelphia, PA welcomes the community of people who knew and loved her to share in remembering.

"Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end."
