We lost a true friend of Football and the biggest champion of the CDMFA yesterday , Susan Morgan. Susan was the CDMFA. She represented it with pride , fierceness and loyalty . I had the true pleasure of knowing Susan for 25 plus years . We sat on the Football Alberta board together and worked as volunteers in the sport .
Susan had a very strong conviction and opinion around the sport and what it meant . She firmly believed in the athlete and we should do whatever it takes to make the athlete experience the best it could be . She was committed always to making the sport better.
What Susan did for the CDMFA for the last 20 plus years will probably never be matched again. She was the glue that held it all together . She knew it all and was there to help in so many ways . So committed to the organization and the kids that played it ..... I never worried what Susan was thinking . She was straightforward and to the point. A time or 2 we did not agree but anyone who knew Susan never questioned her commitment to her Chargers , the players or the CDMFA .It was endless....
There is such a large hole now left in our Football world . I am new to this role and do truly now understand the capacity and time she poured into the CDMFA and the Chargers . I have recently heard stories where it was easier for her to sleep at the Charger clubhouse then go home and come back .... And this happened more then once.She also went out of her way to make sure all Charger players knew what the Charger way was and removed all barriers to making them feel part of that family . Her level of commitment was like no other.
So as we say goodbye and reflect on the life of an amazing woman I will always remember her love of the green riders and her Rider earrings she wore proudly . Her constant pride in the Charger organization and the family she created their . Susan was a very knowledgeable friend at the CDMFA who we will miss daily.
I will simply end this by saying Thank you Susan . Our world is a so , so much better place having you with us , but also thank you for all you did . Our sport and lives are better because of you . We miss you already .
