I had the pleasure of working with Dee at United Airlines for many years. She was a bright light in our office with her quick wit and intelligence. I did not know that she had been a grief counselor, but I can imagine that her caring, empathetic side would have been such an asset to someone who was grieving. We have lost such a great person, and Dee will be missed by all whose lives were touched by her.

as a grief counseler she must have been a warm, wonderful soul to many. I hope her passing was lightened by the presence of her brother, Ted. my prayers to the family for healing.
