I have loved and enjoyed Dixie since the day we met, we just clicked! We had so many fun times together, sometimes doing nothing at all but catching up on our lives since our last meeting. And its a good thing that long-distance phone bills were a thing of the past! I was glad that my daughter had her for another mother, it made my heart easier knowing she was in good, loving hands. I will miss having her in my life but she joins her loved ones who preceded her and thats a joy to her.

We have so many loving memories of Aunt Dixie. She holds a special place in many hearts. Truly an angel sent from heaven.

I have basically grown up with Dixie in my life, as a young girl to an older woman now. She taught me many valuable things throughout the years. My heart is broken and I will miss her. I just received tea towels from her that were special but their sentimentality has deepened to me now. Rest in peace Dixie and know your time here will be deeply missed
