Not sure what to say?

So sorry, she was a wonderful person.

Riecke, we are so sorry we could not attend Dixie's service! Bill is recovering from a small procedure. Dixie was one of the loveliest people we ever knew, and we will miss her so much! She was a perfect example of the saying "only the good die young." She always went the extra mile! May you feel God's peace and love surrounding you during the difficult days ahead! Love, Anna and Bill Lee

I sure am gonna miss you!!!
