Oh, the fun memories of being with "Aunt" Dee, "Uncle" Gee, and Ann are some of the best memories of my life! Every moment with them was filled with jokes and laughter, good food, and parties … and sometimes a little hard work. And I suspect many others share those same kinds of memories with them. God Speed, Aunt Dee; and prayers for acceptance and peace for those who will miss this special lady's presence in their earthly lives. Love, Renee
