LPGA community mourns for Redman family's loss

Susie Kirk wrote on her Facebook page late Wednesday night that she’s in shock and punctuated the statement with six exclamation points. But really, no words can describe the untold pain that Kirk, who played on the LPGA as Susie Redman, and her family have felt in the past 72 hours.
