Matt Cantillon: A Commitment to You All

Friday, December 5th, 2014 at 2:48pm

Dear friends and family: Shiva has concluded and the outpouring of

support has left me speechless. I know that rough days, weeks, months

and years lie ahead as I process the loss of the center of my life, and also deal with the trauma of her last several weeks. Know that my door is always open; my phone is always on; and most importantly because of my 20 years with the most beautiful, kind, intelligent woman that ever graced this planet, my heart is always open to share a Susan story or sit and drink a coffee and chat. What else have we on this earth but our stories and the connections that we have with those we love. You all have my everlasting gratitude. Matt...


Ellen Sokolow:

(Monday, December 22nd, 2014 at 8:15pm) How can I post a photo here?


(Monday, December 8th, 2014 at 10:27pm) So, I had a question that I wanted to ask Sue, today. It is one of those questions that only Sue would have appreciated and be able to quickly provide a witty answer for. I miss her so much!

Sending love to you, Matt, with hopes of a long chat sometime soon.

Jane Hughes:

(Monday, December 8th, 2014 at 1:55pm) Matt, you are always in my thoughts. Glad to hear you are open for visits as this is the time, with everyone returning to their routines, that will be hard. My phone is always on and I am always ready to chat. Shiva was wonderful.


(Saturday, December 6th, 2014 at 8:51pm) I am in the same position as Avra. I can go for hours, seemingly ok, and then the tears come. I suspect this state of affairs will continue for quite some time. Susan was remarkably loving and sensitive. Thank you, Matt, for loving her so completely and tenderly.

Theresa Quinn:

(Saturday, December 6th, 2014 at 8:33am) And Matt, Megan and I are ever available to talk on the phone and visit through the holidays and New Year, and help in Susan's and your lovely garden come Spring time. Susan was a wonderful gardener, of plants and people. Bless her soul, and bless you.

Avra Weiss:

(Friday, December 5th, 2014 at 4:10pm) Sigh.... My heart has another deep hole in it.... Just when I think I have no more tears left, I start to cry some more. Then I remind myself how lucky I was to have her be my sister for 62 loving years, and I "pull myself together" for a while.... But of course I wanted more (healthy) time..... This is the ebb and flow of my grieving.....

Nikki Fenech:

(Friday, December 5th, 2014 at 2:57pm) Matt, Thank you for opening up your home to me and Mike. It was such a blessing to celebrate Susan's life with you and your family. She has touched my life in a way that will never be forgotten. Love to you all.

Matt Cantillon: Leave a Susan Story Sunday, November 30th, 2014 at 11:30am For those of you who are out of town and cannot attend shiva, if you have a Susan story you would like to share, you are invited to post it here and we will read it during the week. Susan's wish was that we would celebrate her amazing life with a tradition Hawaiians call "talking story". As you may or may not know, all we have in life that truly belongs to us is our stories and the connections we have with those we love.


Beatriz Ledesma:

(Friday, December 5th, 2014 at 10:50am) Sometime in 2002-2003(??) I got an email from Susan via FB. She introduced herself as an art therapist living in MI and, because I also was trained as an art therapist, she wanted to know if I was interested in being FB friends. I did a little bit of research on her and thought "sure, she seems to be a committed ceramist artist and art therapist as well... She may be one of those long distance FB "friends" that I may never met. Almost a year later, I got an email from her asking if I'd be open to meet as she was planning in visiting Chicago- she wanted to meet me, come to my studio, and put a real face to our cyber friendship. Shortly after it, I met her and Matt in my studio and we ended up in a pub closed by. Since then, we were in each other's artistic and clinical worlds. When I was seeking subjects for my dissertation on the impact of art making in the treatment of adults, she graciously agreed to be interviewed. It was then that I got to totally "see" Susan's deep commitment to her craft and her strong belief on art as a force for healing. I knew then that she was an art therapist that really can make an impact on her clients because she walked the talk. Thank you Matt for allowing me to tell this story. I believe she is alive in her artwork and in each of us as well. Humbly, Beatriz

Taunia & Lawrence Locker: (Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014 at 7:13pm)

I have two very strong memories of my time with Susan: When we were taking our substance abuse certification coursework it was two solid days every other weekend. Early in the process, our quirky senses of humor brought us together. Susan brought her art supplies, and we'd sit in back and draw and doodle as we learned. Had we known how famous some of our instructors were, we might have paid more attention.

I remember Sunday morning coffee in New Mexico when Matt would bring the NY Times and flowers for her; and I remember experiencing my first Seder at your home there.

The other is a rock. Years later we spent a wonderful week with Matt at Cape Cod for another education seminar. I have the rock I picked up on the beach, I think she found one she liked, and I followed suit. Who else would have even noticed the beauty in a rock? It's on my mantle sitting under a beautiful handmade card Susan sent me when my daughter died. It will have a candle lit all this week as she is so strongly in my thoughts in this dark time.

Oh, and Matt, when I left home this morning, I remembered you drove all the way back from the Cape to Providence to make certain we hadn't left a candle burning in your home before you rejoined us that evening. You and her kids were the joy of her life, your love for each other made it's own brilliant light in the world; and I wish my tears could reduce your pain at her loss.

I only met the kids a few times, they probably only remember me as the "lady with the Big Dog", but our prayers are for all of you to find Peace and All Good, Taunia & Lawrence Locker

Dee Osmundson:

(Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 at 8:39pm) Dear Matt, My fondest memory of our Susan took place way back when we worked together at a law firm in Detroit. I was a new mom and I was hundreds of miles away from my family. I had no one to watch my three week old infant while I had to attend a wedding for my husbands boss. Who would I trust with my baby...only my best friend,Susan. She had the sweetness, kindness as well as some sort of caring that I could never trust my baby to any one else but Susan. Today My son is doctor working with cancer patients to combat that dreadful disease which took our Susan away from us. I will always keep her in my heart and hopefully my son can make some progress in his fight against this disease.

Holly Feen:

(Monday, December 1st, 2014 at 9:26am) Hi. I tried to find Filmore this morning and my phone kept taking me to a street sign with no street. I drove all around the neighborhood and stopped once for directions but I didn't end up finding the house. I am sorry. I am thinking of you Matt, and Susan, and all of your family.

Love, Holly

Ellen Sokolow:

(Sunday, November 30th, 2014 at 11:34am) Dear Matt,Thank you for being such a friend and love to our Sue, for being there for her in all conditions and even now. I'm going downstairs now to look for drawings that I have of hers, and will start writing the stories today.

Sending you our love and gratitude, Ellen and Loren

Sending you our love and gratitude, Ellen and Loren Matt Cantillon: Shiva information for Susan Boyes Saturday, November 29th, 2014 at 6:57am

We will sit shiva for Susan as follows:

Starting Sunday November 30thMornings from 8:30 AM to Noon at the home of Hedy and Bruce Jacobson 18134 Filmore Ave. Southfield, MI 48075 and Afternoons at the family home in Ann Arbor at 1939 Brock Ct.

48104 from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Shiva will end on Friday, December 5.

We decided to split shiva between Southfield and Ann Arbor so that more family members and friends of Susan's siblings would be able to attend without the long trip to Ann Arbor. Susan's children will all be here with their spouses and for those of you not familiar with the tradition, it is a chance to get together and tell Susan stories, mourn together for her passing and to celebrate her life and the absolutely stunning legacy that she is leaving behind for us.


Ellen Sokolow:

(Saturday, November 29th, 2014 at 8:12am) We will be with you in spirit and will write some Sue stories here to be shared.

Love you Matt!!

Theresa Quinn:

(Saturday, November 29th, 2014 at 7:09am) Megan and I are thinking of you at this time, Matt, and sending love.

Matt Cantillon: Susan is gone.

Friday, November 28th, 2014 at 7:20am Susan Boyes, the love of my life, my beautiful princess passed away this morning at 6:42 AM. I was holding her hand when she stopped breathing, the last 10 days having been especially traumatic in a 3 year running battle with ovarian cancer. In spite of trying to prepare for this eventuality, I find myself overwhelmed and devastated. We will, as we previously mentioned, will be having shiva at our home and I will announce all the particulars when they have been arranged. I will need your support to get through this.


Todd Miller:

(Monday, December 1st, 2014 at 3:04am) Dear Matt, I am very sorry to hear of Sue's passing and of your loss. In high school & through our 20's Sue & I were close friends. During those years I wasn't always in the person I wished I could be & Sue had a huge positive influence on me. Although I can't imagine your pain right now, I thought you might find some comfort in knowing that I've always known that I am a better person for having had Sue in my life. As Peter said, she lives in my heart too.

–  –  –

Todd: Thank you for leaving your note. I think the hallmark of Susan was her abilty to bring out the very best in people. She certainly made me want to be my best, and to never, ever let her down.

Peter Honeyman:

(Sunday, November 30th, 2014 at 5:01pm) She lives in your heart, Matt, and in my heart, too. My deepest condolences and loving wishes in this time of sorrow and remembrances.

–  –  –

Dear Sue. Thank you for being my muse in pottery class almost 50 years ago! And thank you for finding me again after such a long lapse, and sharing your amazing and beautiful family with me.

Over the rainbow bridge, wishing you good travels dear friend.

I love you.

Ellen Sokolow:

(Saturday, November 29th, 2014 at 8:00am) Dear Matt. Oh. That must be why I woke at 5:30 that morning and sat in a silent, expanded meditation for 3 hours. Sue will always be with you. Always. Over the years you have exchanged so many molecules that you have become each other in many ways.

Im so sorry for the suffering that she, and you have endured in this past decade.

And so glad for the time and love that you had together.

Do you remember our conversatoon when I visited you last year? The kids also need you now, you raised themwith all of your love and wisdom.

While I cant be there with you physically to sit shiva with you, Im sitting. Sue is too.

Sending our love, Ellen and Loren

Paul Larned:

(Saturday, November 29th, 2014 at 12:29am) So sorry, Matt. May the Lord bless Susan and welcome her into his arms. May God bless you and give you strength.

raynene greer:

(Friday, November 28th, 2014 at 9:47pm) i knew today before i got online she was gone. it was a beautiful new mexico day, the kind of day when we might have been firing a kiln when we were still at nmsu taking ceramics. we had this big old kiln, susan was tiny but the kiln did not intimidate her, it took us both to load and fire the darn thing but it was always magical, susan was magical. the world is a sadder place. i am so sorry matt and so glad you were there. i had known susan for 37 years! matt i am sorry. thank you for being her historian when she no longer could.

Nancy Davis: (Friday, November 28th, 2014 at 7:40pm)

Dear Matt, I was blessed to have known Susan. Her spirit was vibrant and beautiful. From her I learned the importance of vulnerability and courage. Brene Brown says that courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen. When I sat with Susan, she shared her heart with me. This took courage and a great deal of vulnerability. This opening reveled one of the most inspiring authentic souls I have ever known. I am honored that I was allowed, even for this short time, to be a part of her life. I will treasure these memories, and take from her example that life is fierce and beautiful all at the same time and learning to recognize this dichotomy and lean fully into it with Grace and Gratitude is the best any of us can aspire to. She was a beautiful teacher.

Peace and Blessings, Nancy Davis "Were all just walking each other home" Ram Dass
