Ed & family,

I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Dee. I have such fond memories of days at conventions and talking to you and meeting her. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers during this time of sorrow.

I join you in morning the loss of Dee. To me she was a very gracious and friendly lady who like to talk politics! We both agreed that Obama must go! We traded tips on cooking and she taught me how to make an outstanding beef roast! I like her straightforwardness and brutal honesty! I for one will miss her visits to the funeral home and her constant comment to me -“you don’t want to move to Mexico!” As a fellow “chicagoan” I pray that God will hold Dee in the palm of His hand and enjoy her great personality!! With love!

Please accept my sincere promise of prayers for Dee and all her family as we lose a great woman and give her back to our loving God. I trully enjoyed all the times that I visited with Dee as we consoled one another on the sad fate of things in the White House and our hope for real change from socialism and the “chicago way” Dee and I were proud to be born in Chicago. She willingly shared food secrets with me especially her pot roast which she made for me several times and then told me the secret which made it so unique! In discussions Dee never held back giving her opinion and sharing back and forth with me Every time we spoke shsaid -“tom don’t move to Mexico -we want you here!” I pray that our loving God will have a special place for Dee and enjoy her forthrightness and straight forward approach!! I love you Dee and will miss you.
