    My deepest condolences to Dee Dee’s friends and family. Growing up I knew her as Aunt Dee Dee although we’re not blood relation. I have great memories of visiting Larry and her and Shane and Cherish out on Burlington Ave and she and my mom just laughing together. She was always the kindest and sweetest to my sisters and me. What a beautiful soul! May her memory be a blessing.
