Steve and I used to meet Dee and Dan for breakfast at Jack in the Box on Saturdays. We sat there for hours laughing and sharing stories but mostly laughing. We had such a great time. We will always remember Dee as caring, kind and spunky. She will be missed. Our deepest sympathies to Dan and family.

Dear Grandma (Dee)
Whenever I visit Texas, your presence will be missed. You are definitely a one of a kind woman. I remember whenever we would drive around in the truck, you always had a book out trying to read.. ( I remember taking note of that because I hate reading)
I remember our walks up the drive to that bush that had berries when I was a little girl. And you’d make it into a berry cobbler.
One day you made a salad with berries, nuts and used a sweet raspberry dressing. We had it one night and I LOVED it so I remember you made it again for me. I haven’t had it since then up until this week. When I was thinking about you it started sounding really good so I made it!
I remember you LOVED watching Mash and Frasier. I’d watch it with you, surprisingly I did enjoy watching Mash.
I remember Grandpa sleeping on the couch so I could sleep with you and we watch “you’ve got mail” and you would turn on water nature sounds on your radio.
You taught me how to play solitaire and you surprised me with how good you were with guessing the phrases on Wheel of Fortune.
You also made me a hand made doll (I wish I would’ve taken better care of it, and had it now)
I remember you taking me into town to get me something, I remember we had the best conversation. I enjoyed talking with you.
I remember watching you& Grandpa goof around at the table and he’d always call you “woman”
Grandpa really loves you. He built that house for you and I think that’s the most beautiful gesture. I know it’s gonna be hard for Grandpa and the family without you being here. I’m gonna do my best to be there for him! As much as I can be being in another state.
The list goes on!
As I write this, and as I’ve thought about you lately. I realized the impact you definitely had on my life. Your presence will be missed.

Dalinda, you were my oldest and dearest friend. We met in the HPD Dispatchers office in 1976 and have been friends since. You were in my wedding and I was at yours. You were the sweetest, most giving person I knew. I love you and miss you dearly. My heart goes out to Jake and Dan and your family.
