Jerry, my deepest sympathy on your loss. Dee was the first person I met volunteering on Thanksgiving in Walton seven years ago. I looked forward to seeing her there, as well as, the Flyers breakfast at the Sidney airport. She had a delightful smile that made me smile every time I saw her. She flies with the Angels now.

So sorry to hear of Dee’s passing. She was a true friend, and will be greatly missed! I came to know Dee when I lost my mother. Dee fell in love with mom’s poodle, Chari. It all worked out perfect because Chari needed a loving home, and Dee had just lost her own poodle. RIP
