    Sorry for your lost, Dee Dee's family was
    close to my family. They called me Buddy.we work together in the tomato patch, and had a lot of laughs together. Her mother (Miss Virginia) and the girls were good people that I enjoyed being around.Miss Virginia and my mother sure had some Good prayer meeting, which I am thankful for because that's what kept me out of a lot of trouble and brought salvation for my soul! The family will never be forgotten. Always enjoyed visiting with Dee Dee at sav-alot. Hope that the family will find comfort and peace in the Lord Jesus
