I was saddened to find out just a few minutes ago that author, Jane Kennedy Sutton, passed away on May 6, 2011. Her husband posted a message on her blog, Jane's Ride, earlier today. Jane was the author of The Ride and an active blogger. She was one of the first authors I interacted with when I started this blog almost two years ago. She would stop by and comment from time to time...always friendly and sweet. I would comment on her blog as well, although I wish I would have interacted with her more. How sad it is to realize too late that you didn't spend the time you should have. The shock has floored me and I've been very upset and crying since I read the news. Jane, if you're looking down, please know that you will be missed. Rest in peace, lovely lady.
