Dee and I have been friends since childhood we were always together, as we grew we parted and married and began our families. I gave birth to my third baby and Dee had Ricky when she seen my name (back then you had to sign in to visit) she immediately called me and we reconnected again. Our families got close and the children played together, Rick, Dee, myself and my husband went out many times. The one time Dee and I remember was our trip to Atlantic City Casinos (where she got sick because she missed her children, leave it to Dee). When Rick and Dee decided to move to Arizona we swore we would keep in contact and we did for awhile, again our lives went in different directions. Then came Facebook (thank god) I received a message from guess who...DEE! We reconnected AGAIN and haven't stop since. She is one of my dearest friends, kind, great listener, beautiful, great smile, someone I will miss so much. Dee and Rick came back to Pa. for a visit in November of 2011 and were able to stop by for a visit, something I will cherish forever. The day I received the news that she passed I cried all day and falling asleep that night was very difficult, when I finally did I was awoken by someone brushing my cheek very lightly, when I woke up there was no one there...I know it was my friend. I take great comfort knowing she will be there for me (that is just like Dee). My heart is broken and I am very sad to lose my friend, and I wish she lived closer so I could have been with her, but I take comfort knowing one day we will reconnect as we have so many other times and she will be there with her beautiful smile holding out her hand....until we meet again my dear friend!
Always your friend,
