    My sincere sympathies to all of you in the loss of this bright light, Dee Dee. She was such a beautiful person inside and out, and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to get to know her and work with her. May you all find comfort in the many people’s lives she touched in such a short time. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
