Suzan Cooper (Mrs. Gordon Cooper)


"Father, we thank you, especially for letting me fly this flight - for the privilege of being able to be in this position, to be in this wondrous place, seeing all these many startling, wonderful things that you have created." Gordon Cooper
Good Mourning, Widows. Joy to you and me.
Welcome famous widow, Suzan Cooper, wife of famous Mercury astronaut, Gordon Cooper, to our joy-ous club. The club that nobody wants to become a member of.
Colonel Cooper soared into suborbital space aboard a rocket, the first successful launch from Spaceport America, a commercial spaceport being developed in the southern New Mexico desert.
Suzan Cooper fired the rocket carrying small amounts of her husbands' ashes at 8:56 a.m. local time, Saturday, April 28, 2007.
Suzan Cooper paid $495 to place a few grams of her husband's ashes on the rocket.
Since it was a suborbital flight, the rocket soon parachuted back to Earth, coming down at the White Sands Missile Range.
Colonel Cooper was born March 6, 1927 and died October 4, 2004. He was 77 years old.
Mourning Joke:

Q: What's green and jumps up and down?

A: A lettuce at disco.

Mourning Quote:

"It is impossible to discourage the real writers-they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write." --Sinclair Lewis

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Write something. Go ahead. I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day, Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
