My Mom
Dee was known for her beautiful smile and friendly personality. She was the most caring woman anyone could meet. Not only did she raise children and grandchildren, she was a second mom to nieces and nephews. There are still friends of the family that swear she was their second mom. Not only did she make time for family, if there were people in the community in need guess who was always there. Many people including myself will never forget you. A true earth angel, My Mom.
