First things . . . Richard Falknor on 16 Apr 2017 08:33 pm
My wife and co-publisher Susan Freis Falknor died this afternoon at our home in Bluemont, Virginia after a brief illness.
Susan, a professional editor and researcher, was essential to the quality of all our posts and wrote our book reviews.
She drew on her substantial experience in nonprofit think tanks (such as the Urban Institute and the American Enterprise Institute) and for-profit information companies.
Moreover she made possible our related activity — the Maryland Center-Right Coalition (the Maryland Thursday Meeting) — which we guided through 2014.
Holding degrees in Humanities and English from the University of Chicago and the University of Maryland, Susan was also a published poet.
Most important, Susan was a devout Christian: “I AM the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me, shall never die.”
