I was blessed to be able to meet your family in a time of transition when you needed me most as your home care nurse... yet felt like family.
Your spirit and love for life was inspirational. The smiles I would get when I came for my visits will always be cherished.
You had so much grit and fire for yourself and your family. They were your world. I see so much of you in the legacy you leave behind. It has been an absolute honor being able to know you and your family.

I am so sorry I did not get to say good by. Dixie was my little sister that liked to win. I know she was a great mother. Her children always came first. I am sure Mom and Dad were there to meet her and tell what a wonderful job she has done. Will miss you, but I know we will all be together again. Until then all we have is memory's from when we were young, Better known as the good old days. Love your brother Thomas L. Brown

I have no words to express my deep sorrow. She was not only my sister-in-law but my dear friend, so many memories over the years.
She battled 3 cancers and a stroke, but she kept right on fighting, she never gave up. My heart hurts for my brother Seth and for Teresa, Larry and the grandkids. I pray that Jesus will give them comfort and peace. I will miss you old friend, and I hope you will see your beloved Clair. My brother lost his best friend , they were married for 52 years. All my love to you Dixie and the loved ones you left behind. Til we meet again, Toots.
