I am sorry for your loss of Aunt Dee.  I very much admired her and I know you will feel her loss for a long time.  Our
prayers are with all of you at this time.

I remember when she lived at Popular Creek with Grandma Lilla. I was a little girl of 6 years old and she would
give me a little bit of perfume to wear when I went to visit her in her room.  She was so sweet about that and I
always enjoyed her gift of self.

I am sorry that I cannot attend her service, but it is too far from Idaho to make the trip.  

God Bless you all,


Carol Martinek

Today you lay to rest one fine lady.  May your hearts be comforted knowing she is in a better place.  Praying for all
of you who loved her.

Loyd, I'm so sorry for your loss.  Your mom was a super lady and I always enjoyed her visits to Valdosta.  I wanted
to share this link to one special visit in particular so others can see what a vibrant and outstanding woman your
mother was.  

God bless you and your family,

With Love,
The Lancasters

My heart is with all of you today. How I wish I could be there.  
Dee was an amazing and a strong woman. She lived life to the fullest.
She gave me my love of horses. She will live on in the hearts of many.
Part of her will always be in her grand children and great grand children.
You will be truly missed Dee. My love and prayers for all of the loved ones.
