     It has been (3) weeks plus, since God recalled one of his most precious angels.  Veronica Susan (Hulse) Avis, left this world on April 2, 2014, losing her battle with cancer.  While I feel as though the very life has been taken out of me, I cannot say that the impact of her loss has completely hit me yet.  I miss her with every thought, I expect to see her when I enter a room, I look to seek her approval for everyday life decisions.  It is so unreal that someone so young and vigarous can be taken away as quickly as she was.  And though she was diagnosed with cancer not even one year, and three months ago those who knew and love her clung to hope that she would be one of the lucky ones to go into remission.  Sadly, she wasn't. She kept her poise, her sense of humor, her class, her beauty and integrity right up until the end.  It is unbelievable how quickly she went down in the last three weeks.  If I had to find a silver lining in any of this, it is that she didn't suffer near as long as some with cancer do.  But it is hard for me to accept that she had to suffer at all.

     Many of you responded to this site, and sent monetary gifts, many brought cards with gifts in them to the funeral home.  To all of you who gave, thank you so much on behalf of myself and Chasitiy, and our lost angel.  We were able to pay off the funeral home with the gifts you gave.  However, we still have to raise money to cover the cemetery plot, and to purchase her a headstone befitting an angel.  Ignore the $35,000 goal on this site, since that was a random number picked when we thought treatment options were still available.  If I knew how to change that amount I would have already done so.  Also, the site still appears under the title, SOS Save Our Susan, which is no longer a posibility.  But since our focus has now changed to a Memorial Site, we will just call it SOS Save Our Susan's Memory.  We are trying to raise money in a variety of ways, such as the sale of Memorial Scented Candles, Susan's Memorial DVD (full of pictures of our angel), of course contributions to this site, or by check to Jack or Chasity (see below), and possibly one or two more fund raising events in the next month or two.  At one of those events we will hold a silent auction, and we will also be raffling off an autographed signed UK basketball signed by John Calipari. For more information on any of these products or events, email Jack at    Please help.  Click on the GIVE tab on this site and contribute whatever amount you can with credit card or debit card.  If you are not comfortable putting cc info on a computer you can send a check made payable to:
