One generation passing the next stepping up

Last week we said goodbye to a friend of 20+ years. It's hard to let go especially when the one you love has a zest for life. Dee Dee was a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many.

Dee Dee specifically asked of us to celebrate her life with laughter, love and fun memories.

After becoming a mother Dee Dee became a stay at home mom taking in children to care for so she could stay home with hers. when they were all in school she became class mom to each of her four children. she attended all the events that each of her children were involved in.

When her children married she became a very loved grandmother and she did the same for them attending all the events with them.

Dee Dee was known to let her kids then grand kids eat dessert as an appetizer before what ever meal anyone wanted to eat it at. She was also known to hand out treats when parents did not want any given out telling the grand kids to run as fast and far as they could.

Two of the last things she did wer…
