    I loved my Aunt DeDe, she was full of love for her family. I remember staying with her when I was little, good memories. I will miss her dearly, but I know she is doing cartwheels with her brothers & sisters & last but not least, Linda. I miss them both.❤

    I loved Aunt DeDe a lot.
    My sister and I stayed with her when our mom had our brother, Bob.
    I have so many fond memories of Aunt DeDe and Lindy, her daughter
    who passed away on New Years,
    and I will treasure them always.
    Linda and Aunt DeDe are together in Heaven with the sisters and brothers. ❤❤ Love and will miss you both.
