Default Suzanne Swearengen

All of you are family, so I wanted to let you know that my wife Suzanne passed this morning. It was a fight to the end, but her passing was peaceful.
She loved aviation, experimentals, and loved interacting with all of you. She did meet some of you at various events, and considered you all family.

So as family, I just wanted to thank all of you for the calls, emails, and cards of support. I means so much to us.

Yes----I'm ok--and will carry on the work of TS Flightlines/AS Flightlines--she helped get it going and was instrumental in keeping me straight. She insisted that I work during her illness---That our clients deserved the best effort we could give. WE will carry on the promise we made to her to do just that.

Tom

Tom, I?ve not yet had the privilege to meet you, and didn?t get to meet Suzanne. Yet, as you point out VAF is family. I?m glad you know you are surrounded by people that care. I offer my sincere condolences and you are in my prayers. Hang in there.

Condolences Tom.

It was a pleasure meeting Suzanne and her son at the AFP class a couple years ago.

Thank you for sharing with the community.

Very sorry. You may or may not remember me but I ordered a small custom fuel line from you and you treated me as if I was spending thousands of dollars.

Tom,
Very sorry for the loss of your wife Suzanne.
I can not imagine your grief.
Hopefully time and work will ease the pain.
May she rest in peace.
