When we received the sad news of Dee's passing, it was and still is quite a shock. We were just on vacation weeks earlier with the Winegardner's, and Dee was her usual happy, bubbly self. It's going to be real hard for me to figure out how to get along without my friend, and Randy we know even harder for you to get along without your partner, wife, and love of your life. We will continue praying for you. Please accept our deepest condolences. Bob & Nancy Vogan

Randy, Sorry to hear of Dee’s passing. See was a great employee and always willing to help out a coworker in the pharmacy. She had a positive outlook on life and a smile that matched. I am sure she will be smiling down on you. May you have strength during this difficult time.

Randy, I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Dee in the Pharmacy years ago and even after I went to work in another department I would see her smiling face as she went on her Pharmacy rounds. She will be missed.
