Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. DeeDee was a great man his loss will be felt throughout the whole community. Having spent some quality time with Carey several times, when he talked of Hilda & his family he did it with such love and enthusiasm that not only his eyes but his whole face lit up. You all were his whole world and his pride in you all shone when he spoke of each and every one of you.
