This is so sad.  I've been reading all the OB's of our classmates that are gone way to young and can't help but be so thankful that we are still here to enjoy and celebrate this coming event.

Dee Dee and I were very close friends.  I was her maid of honor when she married Bob Homer. I worked for her father George Marks and it was so hard to lose her at such a very young age.  Life is short but her's was far too short.

Dee Dee and I were friends from a very young age.  She lived not even a block away and we spent many fun afternoons at her home.  After high school we lost track of each other.  I heard that she had passed away and could not believe it at the time.  Reading it here it makes me sad all over again.  Way too young.  RIP Dee Dee.

Dee Dee sat across from me in art.  This is a sketch I did of her.  We had a lot of candid conversations.  I was very fond of her and her openness. Real openness is rare. The world shrinks without it.

Thank you for that memorial, Jim.  I don’t have words to express what I feel, but with your help, my old friend, maybe words aren’t necessary.  I have not forgotten.
