Suzanne Hart

Suzanne Hart got an A in GAR 310.

Molly introduced us a few years ago. Suzanne was thinking about making a career change to gardening and we had lots to talk about. She showed up in my rooftop gardening class last summer and was taking a serious course load: spring trees, the landscape design summer intensive.

She was funny, energetic, and a pleasure to be with. She also worked really, really hard. It's not easy having a full time job and taking classes at night. When Suzanne had to miss class to make a work deadline, she busted her ass to make it up. She earned that A.

There's nothing to say to make it better, no explanation to give solace. It's a terrible thing. It shouldn't have happened. Later we may be angry, but now we are overwhelmingly sad.

I am so sorry, Ellen. It is such an impossibly horrible event.

I hope that something she planted somewhere is around for a very long time.
