My Aunt, Susan Waterfield, passed away today after a tough battle with cancer. By the time of her death, she had 1,018 skydives and numerous BASE jumps as well. She started jumping in the early 90's. I was lucky enough to jump with her many of times, including her 1,000th, as well as BASE jumping together. This allowed her to travel the world whether it be jumping on the international date line into the water for y2k, BASE jumping in Norway, attempting to jump Angel Falls in Venezuela (until she had a malfunction and hit the water going 70mph on a practice jump), WFFC, ETC. Before her death she told all of us that she had no regrets and lived life to the fullest....and that is exactly what she did. I hope she only has blues skies from now on.
She actually dated Johnny for a while before he passed during free fall! Her 1000th was a magic carpet ride where she got her gold wings. For all viewing, she will be buried at sea in a couple of weeks...... by having one last "jump" out of the bomb bay of her friends WWII B25 bomber about 30 miles into the ocian. If any of yall knew Suzie, you would know that is exactly her. During her viewing, she was actually in her jump suite. Take care.
