Jim and Jimmy, Dee was such an amazing LADY. Her cooking was the best! there aren't many people in the world who have her loving demeanor. She was always so kind to me , treated me like family and I am forever thankful for everything she taught me. She helped shape who I am as a Wife and Mother. My heart goes out to all of the family. I'm sure her and Shelly are together in Heaven.
Love Always,
