I was so sorry to read about Sooz - she was so encouraging to me when
I first joined RCB. I have looked for her to post off and on for the
last few years and often wondered where she was and how she was
doing. I am sorry to see such an update :(. So sorry to see your
update too - Tina - please give Pete a hug for me - how awful to have
to deal with such a situation! It was so nice to meet you all those
years ago. You were so kind to share your bead collection with me,
they have inspired me over the years. Here's hoping that 2011 brings
RCB back and better times for all!

Hi there DeMarie! In spite of physical issues, Sooz had honest love and meaningful work and was happy. She loved her husband dearly and her critters, and beads too. I know she got a lot of pleasure from this group too, and so have I. Its good to re-connect here. Sarajane

:( I was so sorry to read this today. It's been so long since I've been to RCB and it was horrible to check in and see such bad news.
Sooz and Susan in VA once sent me a pfnr - (peeps!!) when they learnt that being in the UK I'd never had any :)
I wasn't hugely involved with rcb but it was a lovely place to visit and Sooz was such an integral part of it. She was a very memorable lady and my thoughts are with her family, and especially Kevin, at this very sad time.
RIP Divaocean, hope you're having fun with Mercabee and the other critters xx
And I'm sorry to hear everyone else's troubles ((((((((Kalera, Tina and Shirley))))))))))))))

I too was a recipient of peeps for many years changing to sugar free ones when I got diabetes. I think Susan moved from VA and I no longer have her address. I do have a picture of her with her grandbaby just above my computer.Kathy Hogan left the scene as well, I have not heard from her for quite some time. Hugs Shirley

Hi, everyone! I just saw this posting, and I can't believe it!! That is so sad! Sooz was a dear friend to me online, and we did a number of swaps and BFNR's to others -- she was so awesome! I think I sent her a S'Mores Maker once! It's true, Shirley, that I've moved. I'm back in DC where I started. [We were in VA for 11 years.] Wow, very sad news. But it's nice to see there are some familiar faces still on the loop!
Hugs to everyone! Susan in DC [Shirley, I now have TWO grandbabies!]

So nice to hear from some long lost rcbers!!! I think Sooz would be thrilled to know that she woke up the RCB folks once again :) I hope we all can visit and share once more. Hugs DeMarie

Hi there Rachel! I'm sorry about the news but thought that people who knew her would want to have a chance to call up some truly fabulous memories of her. What exchanges!! Her heart was as big as they come, and though she tolerated no crap she also sang praises where they were deserved...such eyecandy she shared!
When I look at the statistics in the "about this group" section I see that she's the top poster not once, but under TWO names. There were years when this group had 6000 messages and more every month, but now its much less frequented, and the percentage of spam is kinda high. I'd like to see some activity here in remebrance of Sooz, of the great times we used to have checking out such interesting messages from complex people doing wonderful creative work. Oh, such stories!! I miss KathyNV's stories. Bet her daughter M is all grown up now.
Its great to see you here and know that you are still vital--and yes, I am quite happy to picture Sooz and Mercabee having a run with the pack. big hugs to ya!! Sarajane

Jan in New Zealand here. This morning, after months of not checking in, I thiught I must do so.So sad to hear about Sooz. Instead of countless ads, and a few posts, there you all were. Wow, I bet Sooz would be pleased. I loved her lists of sites which were wonderful for a new beader and I have m issed all the people who posted.
This is my first posting for a very long time as I could never log in.
I have just dipped my toes into facebook and I do have Skype to check on my two beautiful granddaughters.
Cheers, Jan
