My mind is still in a state of shock as I just heard that a twinkly, warm , soulful, and beautiful light went out in our universe on July 5th.
""DeDe" and I bonded instantly over our love of dogs! I knew immediately that she was a kind and gentle soul with a giant and generous heart. I pop into Dr. Troxell's office once a month so we have had plenty of opportunities, over the years, to talk about our dogs, share pictures and laugh a lot. DeDe loved meeting my Giant Schnauzer and never failed to ask about Ulysses ever time she saw me. I truly loved this gentle woman with the giant heart!
I know I will forever miss her and will never forget her!
My deepest condolences for the loss of your sister, Dr Troxell.

Three was never a time I went to my appointment with Dr. Troxell that sweet Dee Dee wasn’t at the desk with a welcome and a smile. She always asked about my grandkids and was genuinely interested. You will be missed! God Bless You!

Dee Dee was a very special person. No matter how she was feeling, she would always say she was doing fine. I nicknamed her "sparky" because she always had lots of "energy" and determination. One time, before she became ill, I was having a rough spot on health, and related issues. I commented that sometimes you just need to share your thoughts or have a sounding board. Next thing I knew, she came back to the room with a card with her phone number, and she told me to call her whenever I needed a sounding board. I never had to do so, but that was a very special moment for me. It speaks to the warm and loving heart that Dee Dee had.

Another time, as I was struggling with some blood problems and protein challenges, Dee Dee brought in some supplement that she had received and shared it with me. I still use that supplement. it really made a difference on my protein!

Dee Dee had such a warm and loving heart, and she was a very special person to me over the last 3 1/2 years. I will miss her sorely! And my love to Dr. T. She, too, is the best doctor and warmhearted soul I know. I cannot imagine what this loss is for her.

God Bless, Dee Dee, and I know you are out of pain and watching over us all!
