I received an e-mail from my Doggy Play Group, and I hope in my heart that Ken doesn't mind..


Susan, ElegantMommy passed away. Below is an excerpt from her husband Ken. I'm sure that he'd love to see support from local GTers if you can find the time... As you can see, they aren't looking for flowers-- but to help more greyhounds. I will be there at the wake tomorrow.



Susan passed away very suddenly and so unexpectedly on this past Sunday evening in our home in New Ipswich. My wife Susan was a truly remarkable human being whose love for all animals, but especially dogs was second to none I have ever known. Sadly I do not even know the names of the many nice people we had met over the past few years at Mines Falls Sunday's and at the Belevance Park location. We tended to spend most of our time with the Greyhound people as our Dogs, Elly and Oreo are Greyhounds and thats a common thing to do. I destinctly remember Jen, whose Dogs Cinder and Tigger were always mingling with ours and she and Susan often spoke at the park and I believe also on the Greytalk website.

I hope in time after all this sadness I am dealing with subsides to return to the park on a Sunday morning to allow my kids to run free and enjoy the social company which the Nashua Dog Park provides to them and to myself.

If anyone is interested, Susan Larry's wake will be this coming Thursday at the Tewksbury Funeral Home on Rte 38 in Tewksbury Mass from 4 till 7 pm and her funeral mass will begin at St. Williams Parish in Tewksbury Mass on Friday morning at 10 am.

I wished I had though about you folks sooner as I directed the Funeral home to send donations in lew of flowers to the New Hampshire Greyhound Placement facilities in Goffstown and Marlborough NH.

Pray for my Susan, she is so missed by everyone but so much more by myself.

Ken Burke

Susan sounds like she was a truly remarkable woman. May all of Kens' wonderful memories of her help comfort him. They will be in my prayers. I also read that Susan served our country. Lets remember her and all the others who have left us on this Memorial Day. :standard

Psycho please give Ken a big hug and tell him that we are all thinking of him!! Susan helped me out when I had some Stella questions a long time ago and gave me some beautiful words of encouragement while I waited for Faith. You just know she will be loving on all of our bridge babies right now :grouphug


Take the time to stop and smell the flowers - appreciate your everyday ordinary miracles

Carolyn, Faith, Jeff Gordon (aka Jeffy) and Oscar the chilla. Desperately missing our Stella, we'll see you later sweet girl.

:f_pink:f_pink I am so shocked and saddened reading about Susan.

Missing my sweet girl Scout. My snuggler, my chow-hound, my kissy girl.
It never thunders at the Bridge, and your food bowl is ALWAYS filled.

So strange not living in Atty World. I was a love struck handmaiden to your every whim.
