How sad I was to see that Dee has passed away. I tried to send a note, thinking I had Angel's address, but it came back as the incorrect address. I have so many fun memories of working with Dee at Lazarus. In recent years it was always a joy seeing her at noon Mass at IHM. I remember so many stories about her family which she lovingly told as we worked. Dee was such a dear lady and friend, always brightening ones day. I picture her in heaven and the word "glee" comes to my mind as she beams her love down on all of you. May your sweet memories bring you comfort.

Renee, Denise, Angle, and Richard: I am so sorry that Yvonne and I cannot be with you and your families at this time. As always you are all in our thoughts and prayers. I am glad that your families are there to celebrate Dee's life. I know Big Rich is proud of what you all have done for mom and am sure he is glad to have her back. Love to all.
