Your loving, kindness.and beautiful heart is always with me. Love you
You have been an entertaining and compassionate sister in law. Bob and I will miss your antics. We love you and will miss you so much.
Your loving niece, Brenda and family
For as long as I can remember, Dee always had a gift of making me or anyone around her feel so loved and special. She was beautiful, vivacious,
Independent, compassionate and proud. Everything she did, she poured her whole heart and soul into and topped it off with her own personal touch of pizzazz. It was one of the things I loved most about her. She gave me some of my best childhood memories in Howard Beach and is leaving me with even many more. She was a beautiful soul with the biggest heart, who loved the LORD and cherished her sons and grandchildren. I know she’s doing her happy dance now…she’s with Jesus, is no longer in pain and with her precious son, Danny. Rest in Heavenly Peace, my sweet Aunt. We will miss you terribly
Bob & Lynda
