I really don't have any words. I feel deep sorrow upon hearing this news. I am still broken up over her parents and all she was going through physically. My condolences to the extended family.

Dee Dee will truly be missed by all, especially me. We did pretty much everything together. When you saw one, you saw the other. We had planned big adventures to undertake once she got better, but God had bigger and better plans for her. Thanking God that I have lots of amazing memories of our times together. I will never forget her sense of humor, love of children, relatives, friends, and most of all her parents.  Farewell my friend, until we meet again.

I met Dee-Dee in first grade. We were classmates our entire lives until college. There were just a few of us who were together the entire 12 years, which made us more like family than schoolmates. Dee-Dee could be "fiery" at times, but had THE sweetest disposition! And, oh, how she loved her parents!! With the advent of Facebook, we became Facebook friends and kept up that way. We exchanged private messages when her mom and dad passed and she expressed that as tragic as it was to lose them so close together, she had faith in God that she would be all right. As the t-shirt says, she "loved Jesus, but cussed a little." She is the first lifelong friend I've lost, so processing this loss is difficult. But if you knew her, you loved her. As Brad said, this is a sad time for us all. But He's God all by Himself. See you in the morning, Deirdre Dihan Blue.

To the Family of my dear friend Dee-Dee, whom I have known since kindergarten. Dee-Dee as we called her was one of the sweetest kindest person I know. I am so sorry about your loss. I have lost one of my dearest friends whom I was very fond of. I will miss her greatly and she will be in my thoughts and prayers always. Please know how much I share your grief. It is a sad time for all of us.
