Her family and friends wish to extend their deep appreciation to the many health professionals within our community and beyond who provided her with exceptional care.

Didi is an old, old friend who I met in Boston in 1965. We lost contact too many years ago but I still remember a slightly shy, beautiful, sweet person who made this mixed up world a little bit better of a place. Didi, I will always remember you with a glad heart. God Bless you.

KK and Miss Amy:
I send my thoughts on your loss of beautiful DiDi. I will always think of her wonderful smile and welcoming personality. From the 1st time I meet her (I believe at KK's 50th birthday) I felt comfortable and a friend. My unannounced stops at the cottage where greeted with a warm smile and great talk. KK and Amy stay strong like she was. Peace and love. Voks
