I wonder if Aunt Dee had any idea how much her life affected mine. The love and joy she had or even if she pretended, seemed the way to go, in the face of difficulty or hardship. Cheerful acceptance and humour. One of my favorite, more recent memories of Dee and her brother, my Uncle Jim, was when I visited them in Arizona. I had dinner at their RV. For the main meal there was little piece of chicken, tiny portion of rice, a piece of pineapple, as I recall, then the table was cleared. I was still hungry and sort of amazed by the small size of the dinner. But then...the desert! Huge piece of carrot cake and all the ice cream you please. Still makes me laugh.

Lots of memories flood my mind as I sit remembering Aunt Dee. I only saw Aunt Dee during our annual drive to Reedsburg. We packed into our Dodge station wagon, and it was always a relief to pull up to that very inviting stone home on 8th street (did I get that right?). Doughnuts heated in a paper bag in an oven, cookies, that might have been made a bit too long ago, Grandma and Grandpa Goodman are the mainstays. As a kid, all the adults were unimportant because all I was looking forward to was seeing Micky (who by now is probably called Michael). But somehow, at some time during our visit, Aunt Dee would also be there. And also Uncle Russel. Of course I remember Aunt Dee's laugh, and her stories, and her stories about my mom. But she thought it was really funny that Uncle Russel woke me one morning - Must have been a teenager because my hair was very long, and my brother Jim and I slept in the sunroom or on the living room floor and I was awakened by something cold and fat and footlike rubbing on my sleepy face. Uncle Russel was looking down at me and saying hello because they had just arrived from Mayville(do I have that right?). When I told the story to Aunt Dee, she didn't sympathize with me a bit! Carol and I visited Dee in Mayville (I think Dee liked to call it 'Mayberry') after Uncle Russel had died. She took us to visit with Suzy, and then we ate out. I think Aunt Dee's strong commitment impressed me. Even with difficult life circumstances, she remained strong in her faith, and always seemed to have a good story and a good attitude. When my mom tells of her annual Reedsburg visits, that sadly are probably soon to come to an end, she is always blessed by the good times that she has with Aunt Dee, Uncle Donald and Uncle Jimmy. The loving nature of those family get togethers is inspiring to me as I am only a few decades behind. I feel saddened for your loss, but our Lord's heaven will be a livelier place because of Aunt Dee. Dustin 3
