I'm happy to report that Peter Slattery, Susan's 16-year-old son, is now sitting up and communicating. He has several broken bones but should recover physically. 12-year-old Matthew, however, is still in a coma in Akron Children's Hospital ICU.
The school year begins tomorrow, and I've already started to try to pull together some loose ends in the wake of Susan's death. Susan was the major organizer of Stevenson's two previous successful mountings of "Expanding Your Horizons", and number three is scheduled for October 2. I got together all the notes I could find regarding past EYH planning and will distribute them to the other math faculty. Some of the things that Susan did, however, were done only by her, and we'll have to hunt down the information. Hopefully the Math Department, in cooperation with the rest of the School of the Sciences, will still be able to pull the event off. The fall initiation ceremony for the SU chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon Honorary Math Society is slated for September 21. At both EYH and the KME fete, we will make it a special point to honor Susan's memory.
