    As some people journey through life, they leave footprints wherever they go. Footprints of kindness and love, courage and compassion, humor and inspiration, joy and faith. Deede left behind a trail bright with hope that invites us to follow. A dear friend, who was loved by all.

    Deede had the patience and love of a saint every time I called to ask questions or request help while she was our church secretary. She has been missed since she retired and will be always remembered as a most beautiful, spiritual, loving woman who graced many lives.
