  4. I am so saddened to read of the passing of our dearest friend, Dee.
    I am so happy that I was able to visit her at Christian Park about a month ago on my way home from Green Bay.
    My friend Lat and I stopped at their home to learn from Don that Dee had fallen and was at Christian Park.
    I am so sorry that I I was not aware of her passing until after the funeral had taken place.
    Both Don and Dee were the dearest friends that anyone could ever dream of.
    Rest In Peace my dear friend.
    Hugs, Love and Prayers for you and all your extended family.
