Mrs. Dezzie,

Some of my fondest memories of when I was young centered around you, Denmon, Charles, and Nelson. Our family's lived next to each other for years and you were like a mother to me. I will always hold you in a special place in my memories and my heart.

She was such as joy to get to know and love. She was part of the NHC family and will always be remembered and loved by NHC. She always had a very positive outlook on life and that is one thing that made her special.
