Ms D. You will be truly missed. I will miss the good conversations, your laughter and most of all your wisdom. You have talked with me and we’ve shared lots of good time and some not so good. But you were always optimistic about things and that helped me get thru. I’ll miss u from the bottom of my heart. Love u always. ❤️Lisa
