There will be a private memorial service at a later date for family. Dee was beloved by her family and will be greatly missed. I give you this one thought to keep - I am with you still - I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone - I am with you still - in each new dawn. Native American Prayer. The family wants to thank the loving staff of At Home With Friends, Bay to Bay Blvd., Tampa, and LifePath Hospice of Florida. Arrangements by Brewer & Sons Funeral Home, South Tampa Chapel.
