Yesterday, just before midnight local time, scarlatti's mother wrote:

Susan died today, June 15th, at 1:11 p.m. Please forgive me for the lack of detail. I will write more later.

As indeed will I.

I don't even know where to begin.

Doug, please accept my deepest condolences, and I hope you will also convey to scarlatti's mother how deeply she will be missed.

You don't know me, and neither did Susan (if she did it was very briefly), but I've lurked and read most of both of your fic and many of your entries. I think it's safe to say that in addition to all that has been lost for you and her family, the M*A*S*H fandom has lost one of it's greatest writers, even though she hadn't written in the fandom for ages. My two first humble attempts at M*A*S*H fic where both very much inspired by her work.

I hope you won't interpret this as insolence, but rather as a testament that scarlatti touched people she didn't even know, and we can only hope that she had that knowledge with her when she left us.
I don't know of what faith Susan was, but I believe very strongly that (as I believe I've heard that she was ill?) she has moved on to a better place. This sound so cruel, I know, and it's so hard to believe and accept, and we would very much like to have her with us for a much longer time. Sometimes, it can't be done.

I've always thought it corny to write these things, but I'm still going to. Job 1:21: "the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord"

Thank you for that; my faith coincides with yours.

From the first book of Paul's letter to the church at Corinth, chapter 15:
The body you have down here might as well be just a seed. You don't know what its potential is until it's put in the ground. This body is perishable; is fallible; is weak; is corruptible. It's in no condition to inherit the kingdom of God. The body that is raised is imperishable; is glorious; is powerful; is incorruptible. You know what is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory". Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory; you should know that your labour is not in vain.
