I will never forget the fond memories I have of Dee. She was one of the most fun people to be around and she was able to effortlessly make everyone else have a good time. She will never be forgotten and I will miss her deeply. Thanks Dee for all the laughs. My condolances to the family.
Mrs. Roberts, or Dee” as she loved to be called was not only a great patient but she was an awesome friend. I loved her humor her ability to make you laugh and her her passion for loving life and savoring the moments. She was an awesome and very beautiful soul. She could brighten your day in a way that only she could. It was and honor and a privilege to have crossed paths with Dee. Words cannot express my deep sympathy felt for the family but I hope that it will comfort them to know that even though she has been promoted and is now illuminating heaven like only Mrs. Dee can she is always always with us. Cherish those wonderful memories and each time you hear a song she loved or think of the crazy jokes she could tell she will be there with you. Heaven has just gotten a little bit more sweeter because Dee has entered in and spiced it up as only she could. I will miss you Dee and love you always my sweet friend.”
