Re: Sad, Sad News - Our Wonderful Sooz (Khadres) Has Passed Away

I don't know what to say - I am shocked and saddened. I did not know that Sooz was ill. She was a spark of life here and in the Animal/Wildlife Forum and gave me some very good - to the point - advice when I first came to the Soft Pastel Forum. She will be sorely missed and fondly remembered.

Re: Sad, Sad News - Our Wonderful Sooz (Khadres) Has Passed Away



This was Sooz's postcard to me last year - already treasured, but now doubly so.

The news of her death has shocked and saddened many of us and I wish to send my condolences to her family also - along with those to her many special friends in the Pastel Forum and in the wider family of WC!

Thank you Sooz, for being 'You' - we'll miss you.

Re: Sad, Sad News - Our Wonderful Sooz (Khadres) Has Passed Away

Don't know if ya'll knew it, but Sooz was from Texas, and went to UT. She was thrilled when they won the Rose Bowl, and we sent her a picture of the tower all lit up orange after that. She loved to talk about that tower being all lit up when they won, and was planning to retire to the Austin area (when Gary retired) until a heat stroke in Colorado Springs recently made her rethink it.....so a big HOOK 'EM HORNS TO YOU SOOZ. I expect you will be helping the team along now if football angles are allowed.

We will all miss Sooz soooo much! She is one of the talents here that has made WC the great place that it is...I always looked forward to her posts and comments and wonderful artwork. It will never be the same.

I am so saddened to hear this news...I was another newbie that she was welcoming and kind to, she was so generous too - I will miss her witty comments, and always kind critiques. God Bless her

So glad you enjoyed your trip; but I knew you would! Sounds like you saw the "good stuff" and didn't waste too much time on the touristy junk...good for you. Can't wait to see your ptgs! And I agree with your sentiments...every time I've gone to England, I cry when it comes time to get on the return plane; I'd gladly stay for at least a year or two!

Re: Sad, Sad News - Our Wonderful Sooz (Khadres) Has Passed Away

I only knew “Sooz” through Piper. In reading the memories of her friends the following has come to mind. May they bring comfort, love, and support to you her friends and also to her family.

“Every man's (woman’s) work, whether it be literature or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself. (herself)”
- -- Samuel Butler

“Tears are the unspoken words of hearts, the jewels of our souls.”

“It is okay to cry. It helps me see better.”
-from a 12 year to her father.

Very sad news. My deepest sympathy goes to her family. We will miss Sooz on the forum. Her friendly words encouraged a lot of people here on Wetcanvas.

I did not know Sooz really as I have had little interaction with her but I want to offer my condolances to her family. I can see that she was a beloved member of Wet Canvas and most certainly is a loss to us also.

Re: Sad, Sad News - Our Wonderful Sooz (Khadres) Has Passed Away

What a shock to come home to open this thread. This is my favorite place on the 'net, and Sooz helped make it that way. My thoughts and prayers to Sooz's family. She was a wonderful lady. She took time to PM me when, some of you may remember, I was having so much trouble with my son. I kept thinking that one of these days I would PM her and take the time to run down to Colorado Springs and meet her. Thought it would be sooo cool to meet Sooz. I KNOW it would've been. Keep painting Sooz. We'll look for your work in the stars and the clouds. God bless you, and your family.

Christine

Sooz was one of the first WC members to comment on my "new" attempts at pastels. I felt an instant affinity with her and the "Bay Window Gang". I will miss her very much.

So shocked to hear this very very sad news! My deepest condolences go to her family and friends. I was one of the many newbies that she welcomed into this wonderful community; with her wit and wonderful words of advice. She will be missed deeply.
