Her favorite time of the year was Christmas and the Christmas Spirit of it in celebrating the birth of Christ; you could always her Christmas music playing throughout her home pertaining to her Lord. Sue had a big smile and many of times folks would compliment on her smile, had a very outgoing personality, and had no problem making new friends. She also liked gathering around the table with family and friends to listen to stories and jokes. "The mother memories that are closest to my heart are the small gentle ones that I have carried over from the days of my childhood. They are not profound, but they have stayed with me through life, and when I am very old, they will still be near. Margaret Sanger, American nurse and activist"
