My deepest condolences to Dee and all of Ethels family. I worked with Ethel for 2 yrs. starting in1983. She worked for Dr. Dennis and I worked for Dr. Vidrine. We shared the same office. She was a hard worker and a lot of fun. She taught me how to cross stitch...she could make anything...again so sorry for your loss.
