Dallas was a great bridge player. We all enjoyed her fine company at the Bridge Center. The ladies always wanted to see her pretty nails! She will be sorely missed.

Dallas was always a formidable opponent at the bridge table and I enjoyed her friendship over the past years along with her sweet smile and always kind words. She will be missed by everyone that knew her. You have my sympathy in your loss.
