Memories of Cousin Susan

She was a bit older than me but that did not matter. She taught me how to make a mat out of palm leaves. She taught me to say my first words in Spanish. But above all, she was my guide when I was barely able to walk and talk!

Cousin Susan was my mentor. She was always by my side and walked hand in hand with me all the way. She knew from the get go that I was blind and was always constantly explaining things to me.

We played together. We walked together. We swam together, and at night she told me lots of stories as we laid in bed together. She was a light in my life at that time.

Cousin Susan taught me so many things and was never tired of teaching, showing, explaining, and helping. She even made me a paper doll all dressed up in a carnival costume and called her Carnival Mollie.

I never knew what she looked like and my first sight of her was when I saw her in a picture as a bride. Over the years I have clutched memories of Cousin Susan very close to me, but alas! We never stayed in touch.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day.Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
