She was blessed to be surrounded by numerous caring and thoughtful family and friends. Dee was truly an animal lover and she was comforted to know that her pets have been adopted into loving homes.

“I miss my mother so very much and find myself pausing throughout the day thinking “oh I need to call mom” and then sadly remember, she is no longer taking calls. Instead, I say a silent “thank you God” and commence to talk to her toll-free.”
