I love your messages! January 2009 Sedona, AZ
Thank you for being so generous to my grandaughter. She cherished the bookmark and made sure it went into her house with her. The inscription to her in “Purple Puppy” is wonderful. She will appreciate it when she gets older. I read the book out loud on our ride home. It is a wonderful story and so beautifully illustrated.
Video is outstanding. December 2008 Sedona, AZ
I watched the video “Purple” with tears in my eyes. Absolutely excellent job. Absolutely excellent message. I hope this can get out around the world somehow. Get it in some other languages. It is truly well done! EVERY single child should see it EVERY year at school. Thank you for doing it.

Hello to Susan Faith ….I live in the UK and I have just found your book Purple Love which you so kindly signed for my baby grand-daughter in 2001. You wrote “Dear Amelia , wherever you travel always carry your most prized possession,your smile! much love and light in your Life” and signed it. I visited Sedona in 2001 just after 9/11 I was recovering from breast cancer at the time and had my last Chemo on 9/11!! What a beautiful place, the only place to go to recover eh? Anyway I just wanted to say hello and thank you for the book.

Hello - we met at the hotel in San Diego last week and you generously shared your time with our boys, Andrew and Brian. What an incredible treat it was for us to spend some time with you to hear about your documentary and your books. We cannot express enough how impressed the boys were to have met an author and a filmmaker (they also loved the furry friends too). Thank you again for the special autographed books for the boys - it will be a treasured item in our home. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I am attaching a photo we took with you to share - it will definitely make it into our scrapbooks and as a “highlight” of our trip.
Extremely useful to parents and teachers. January 2006 San Diego, CA
After reading the first few pages of the heartwarming story, Purple Love, one of the main messages for the book became evident. Susan Faith emphasized the deep devotion a mother has for her daughter. It was truly beautiful to see the quality time Sarah’s mother shared with her. She not only was a teacher to Sarah, but a true friend. Because of their open relationship, it allowed mother and daughter to discuss a variety of difficult subjects such as life and death. As a retired educator, I saw many children suffer emotionally and academically due to the lack of parental devotion. Without such a relationship, life and death issues would have been difficult to approach.
Thank you for the wonderful work you are doing! Oct. 2004 Cottonwood, AZ
Saw the “story” in today’s Kudos on Purple Puppy …it was wonderful!!! (We have a golden retriever and so this book is special for us too!!)
I absoulutely love your book Purple Love… Feb. 2004 Chardon, OH
…and your soulfully integrated approach to life. Thank you for writing the book - it’s a gift to anyone who reads it. I plan to spend some time “wondering around” your website to see what else I can learn. But, I did want to drop a note and let you know how touched I am by your soul.

I was so inspired by your website and have shared it with several people who have themselves become inspired. I have always been drawn to the color purple… I honor and join with you in our pursuit of universal peace and harmony. Thank you.
Thank you! June 10, 2003 Whittier, CA
I found your wonderful book shortly after my grandfather crossed-over. My son (4 at the time) was having a difficult time and I wanted to explain things in a way that he could understand. Your book jumped off the shelf and into his hands at the
Congratualtions Susan! May 15, 2003 Tucson, AZ
I did read Purple Love and enjoyed it - I wish I had read it when I was younger; it could have made a positive impact on how to view death and change.
I just read your article. Feb. 4, 2003 Michigan
How refreshing! You are right-making a difference in the lives we choose to lead makes a difference in the lives of others. Thank you for sharing of yourself…wishing you smiles for the continuing journey.
Purple Love is Wonderful! Jan 9, 2003 Omaha, NE
I got the book and your postcard. I think it will help children understand death. I was reading how you feel about the color purple and that made me realize that that was true about myself. I dyed my hair purple and ever since, I have been more positive about things and I have felt better and more confidant about myself and my work. Thank you again.
