Susan Cleland found herself on a new life path, one she would never have willingly taken, following the loss of her Air Force veteran son, Michael Ryan Vinson, on June 9, 2019. As a result of this devastating tragedy, Susan has made it her mission to share the lessons God taught her in the wake of Michael’s death. Even though Susan and her family will never fully recover from the emotional wounds caused by grief and deep sorrow, she offers encouragement, hope, and purpose to other survivors of veteran suicide.
