Our condolences to Bob and the whole family. She and Bob were lovely neighbors to our parents for many years. What a great mom and grandmother she was. She was strong and kind and resourceful with a sense of humor and a positive outlook it seemed every day.

We began as neighbors, but quickly became great friends! I will always treasure my visits with Miss Dee & our conversations about our childhood, family and friends. Whether it was over coffee, tea, or my homemade margaritas the conversation was always such fun!! She loved my margaritas and we both shared a love for the beach. She as well as I had fond memories going to the beach as kids! Mitch & I both enjoyed taking her our culinary creations & watching her devour every bite! She adored Mitch's cooking!!! And she taught me how to make the best collards around!! Her collard greens are amazing!! We will miss our dear friend Miss Dee immensely and love her with all our hearts!!!!
