I am so sorry to hear that Dee passed away. As MaryEllen said, she truly blessed the lives of so many children... and staff at Sycamore Elementary. I will always remember her fondness for humming birds and how kind she was to others. I'm very sorry. Prayers to her entire family... fondly, Barbara Gaskin
