One of the best. When ever "Dee" was around, it brightened everyone's day. Always dressed impeccably and acting in the most professional of manner, she was such a joy to have gotten to know and spend time with.
My sympathies to the whole family for you are truly lucky to have had her for so many years. My only regret is that I can not share these thoughts with you in person.
Again, my deepest condolences to all the family.
