    You will be missed Dee. You were my sounding board and the best keeper of secrets. I will miss you and I’m sorry I never got to teach you the diamond painting or get the ones I bought you for your birthday done for you. See you some day on the other side. Love you much. Dannie Redding-Hooven

    Dee was one great lady. I remember redoing there trailer for them to move in and she told my boss don’t rush him,he is doing one hell of a job lived two doors down from them. I just wasn’t there maintenance man, I was there friend. And Dee always treated me like family. You will be missed dearly.
