So terribly sorry to hear of Dee's passing. She was such a friendly and kind soul around the barn at AEC. So many great memories on the BIG mare. RIP beautiful lady.

My sincere condolences to all of Dee’s loved ones at this sad time. Dee and I did not keep in touch after university years but it seems that she did not change from the warm, kind, generous person that I knew from junior high to university. She was a great friend to me. A true intellectual, she was an excellent student and breathed enthusiasm. My sympathy to Dees husband Bob and daughter Lydia To Dee’s Mom Edna and sister Gaby , both of whom I knew during school years , I am so saddened by Dee’s passing. I wish you peace . Donna

My sincere condolences to Dee's loved ones. I know her loss is a great one. Dee was always kind to me as she was, it seems, to everyone. She had a lovely aura and a wicked sense of humour. I do remember the many jokes when she bought a Cobra-brand bicycle. May she rest in peace.
