Mrs. Dingee was a really nice lady. She lived at Home Again where my father also lives so my sister, Jillann, and I had occasion to visit with her once in a while and she was so pleasant to visit with! She will be missed at Home Again, that's for sure. My sympathy to Richard and her entire family. She was truly a gem!
