Dear Ray,  We are so sorry to hear of Dee’s passing. We didn’t know she was ill and at Hospice.  She was a beautiful person & we loved her very much.  I (Joanne) enjoyed caring for her at the doctors office for all those years.  And I missed her smile when I left.  Glenda enjoyed working with her & talking to her.  She even came to visit us at AO Orthopedics when she was still healthy a few years back.  She was so kind she just wanted to say hello & keep in touch.  She will truly be missed. 

God always calls our good friends home too early.  But her memories will always be in our heart.  She will be in our thoughts & prayers.

Love, Glenda Keller & Joanne Principe

I am so sorry for your loss. Dee was my favorite customer at Lancaster Hyundai. We always shared a hug before she left and she always had a smile and a kind word. She will be deeply missed by me.
