I'm very sad to learn of Desiree's passing. I will always remember Desiree for her beautiful smile and loving life. We were best friends during my late teens and early 20's. We enjoyed going to country music festivals and sunbathing. It's been many years since I have seen Desiree but I have thought of her often. My prayers are with all of you during this very difficult time.

With love, Sherry Murphy
