I knew Kerry at Trinity University when we were both Drama majors. I saw her name in the memorial column of the alumni magazine. I spoke to her on the phone for an upcoming alumni event and it was as if the years of not being in touch vaporized. She told me all about her children and Dane and her art business. She was a vivacious, happy person who loved life. I am saddened by her death.

When Kerry was at Trinity, she would practice saying the alphabet without her East Texas twang. However, every time she went back to East Texas she had to start all over again! (Note: I did not hear any sign of East Texas when we talked on the phone.) She also explained that she knew left and right by the gas stations that were on the corners of a street in Orange, Texas. So instead of left and right, she would visualize Shell and Exxon!

Another great story about Kerry was when she fell asleep she needed to hear white noise. She had a machine that helped sooth her to sleep. When the white noise machine stopped working, Kerry had to find a substitute-- a hair dryer! Needless to say, the hair dryer did not last very long.

Kerry and I met in 1988 when our husbands joined the Cincinnati Chapter of YPO and we became members of the Spousal Forum C....forever known in our hearts as "Fabulous Forum C!" Monthly meetings for 11 years offered many unique opportunities for sharing, growth and education. We REALLY got to know each other well and shared many wonderful activities. After 1999, when many of us got past the mandatory "rock-out age," our Forum continued to meet "unofficially" as a book club group - studying "reference" books on art, world history, world leaders and many other topics. A special outgrowth of this study group were the four "traveling Ya Ya's" as we called ourselves! Oh, the stories of adventure, education and traveling fun we could tell! Let us just say that Kerry always suggested interesting sights to visit and activities to engage the four of us! As always, these experiences were delightful, what many would call "over the top," but most of all, enjoyable! WE HAD FUN! And we will all sorely miss her adventuresome spirit, her flair for the dramatic, her kindness to all, and her love of those near and dear to her heart.

Kerry was a "one of a kind" individual...generous and loving to her family and with her friends. She will stay in our hearts forever.

With thankfulness for the privilege of her friendship,

When I first met Kerry years ago, I was simply amazed that a person like her existed! She astonished me in her style and exuberance for life. Everything she did was to such perfection from her art work, decor, style, business sense and with such elegance.

I still have her Christmas cards from the late 1980's and early 1990's which she printed of her family portraits and included Robin and Anastasia's artwork. This was before the computer and making one's own Christmas cards was in vogue.

I am so grateful to Kerry for helping me collect Louis Icarts and for framing them in exquisitely. She had a sharp business sense. She had wonderful receptions at her Objet d'Art. She and Dane had the most special event at their home using staged actors and then sent photos to everyone who attended. I now she even invited the opera guild to their New Bremen home when she was on the board.

Kerry loved and cared for her family the most. Her children Anastasia, Robin, Ashton and Christopher were her priority before all else.

She loved animals and even made sure we included our dalmation when we visited.

There can never be another Kerry Dicke! She could make everyone feel special. I am truly grateful I was touched by her kind generous spirit and friendship.

For the family, Mrs. Sexton, and Dane you have our deepest sympathy and love.

Mrs. Dicke, as she will always be known to me, despite her requests to be called Kerry. My children knew her as Gaga. She asked them to stand on her wall and measure their heights. She said, "I'm doing this only if you promise you will come back and visit me." I wish we had that chance and it's my fault for not taking it. I don't think I have ever been treated so generously and been so loved by one person who wasn't my parent. I don't think I have known a person who lit up a room with her laugh, her glasses, her sense of humor and grace all rolled up into one. She always welcomed me with open arms and never closed her door to me. Neither have her daughters and for this I am eternally grateful. People should be so lucky to have a "Kerry Dicke" in their lives. Still, I have trouble realizing that we are without her fantastic sense of style and appropriateness for cocktail hour. I will miss her, personally. I know her son & daughters will miss her more; for this my heart aches. But I will do my best, as she would want, to be a good friend and stand by their sides and make them laugh the way she did me. To open my door and my heart and return whatever favor I can. This is what I can do for her.
