Deedee, you were a worthy adversary in the great “Devil Dog Fight” that we had & I will always remember.
It was simple, enjoyable, crazy, most laughs, messy & wasteful, but best loving fun we had & then all cleaned up the mess together.
You & devil dogs will always be a special memory along with being my aunt & God Mother. 1-4-3
