"The love of my life, Doretha (Dee, Sweetie Pooh) was truly a virtuous, compassionate, generous, and loving wife to me and mother of our children and grand children. She is truly missed and her passing left a deep void in my life-however thank the Lord for His presence in helping me get thru the past year. Not a day goes by where I don't miss her or those precious memories and fun we enjoyed together for more than fifty years. She was always my best friend."
