Always would love seeing her come in the Kwikmart or the restaurant! She would just pop out of nowhere and would say some of the funniest things ever then crack up at what she said! Always had to put in her word and if you didn’t listen, she made you listen! Always made me feel like part of her family! Now I guess we got to hang our own darn Christmas decorations and hide our own darn eggs this year! 😢 RIP Ma Sue ya gonna be missed! Will be keeping the Durham family in my thoughts during this time!

I want to send my condolences to the Durham family. May god wrap his loving arms around each and everyone of the family throughout the loss of this precious lady. She was a loving, joyful, spunky and witty lady. Everytime I went to her house she always wanted to just talk and remeinse of the old days and how things are way to fast paced. I really wish I would of just set a little longer and listened a little more. She loved to talk about cooking and how nobody seems to know how to do that anymore ( I'm guilty as well, I once mentioned making a cake from a box and she about threw her cup of ice at me)!!! Needless to say I now know how to make it proper. Knowing her the years I've got to know her I can only imagine the memories and stories one could tell being raised by such a precious lady as Masue. Rhonda, Elaine, Sandy, Barbara, Pam and Mickey my heart goes out to each and everyone of you.
Love and Prayers,
Elaine's Fixer Man
