Her smile. That's what I remember most. When we'd invade your house for gaming purposes, she'd always have a smile for each person tromping in through the door. She loved people so much, and chatting with her while the game-prep went on was a sheer pleasure.

Aunt Sue always loved music and I always remember her singing when we would have family functions and just sitting around while the guys plays guitars. While I was living with my grandparents during my divorce. Dekhova was young and didn’t understand but as she got older she loved being around aunt sue when she would come over. Dekhova was so sweet with her. She will be forever missed.

Aunt Sue was such a powerful influence in my life. She always had a positive outlook on life, and loved family with all her heart. I’ll never forget her smile, her laughter, her positive attitude. I miss her so much.

Sue, My sister-in-law, was a sweet loving person. She was a part of my family for 60+ years. from our teen years through our senior years. There's so many good memories and stories that I could tell but it would take too long. One thing I will say, she was a strong willed person with good family values. I miss and love you Sue.

As I sit here thinking of Sue, scenes of the past flash back, her kindness, her compassion, her love of family. You got what you saw with Sue but she had a way of delivering it with a big dose of care for that person. I am so glad we got to visit with Sue when Patrick and Stanton came to Ky. My heart and soul will always remember our vivacious Sue, and will forever keep those memories close. Rest In Peace Susie Q.

She was a beautiful soul inside and out. She is missed. Love y’all.

Aunt Sue was always happy. When she was around people that she felt comfortable with, and when those people opened up to her-they became her true friends and she liked them forever. So many family gatherings when I could see her 'click' with someone from across the room, and they would share laughs for the rest of the night. She will be missed by me, and countless other family and friends.

It's always sad to lose a sibling but this one was really tough. Going to miss her smile, her love of music, her love of good food and her love for life. Patrick and Stanton took such good care of her, she was treated like a princess for the last few years of her life. Sue would have loved everything about the Celebration of Life but mostly all the family that showed up to show their love. R.I.P. Sue, we miss and love you a lot.
