Dr. Barnard "B" and Family, It's with deepest regrets and a sad heart to know that Dee passed. I held her with high regards and respect as I do Dr. Barnard. Dee was always considerate, kind, and genuine. I will sorely miss her! Gone yet not or never will be forgotten. Although it's difficult to see beyond the sorrow today. May looking back in memory of Dee bring comfort tomorrow and in days ahead. Much love as I pray for God to bestow blessings and strength upon you! James E. Terry

When I moved to Greenville in 2003 I became friends with Tami (T1) , Dee’s daughter. Dee welcomed me into her fold with open arms. She was a rare soul who loved her family and friends fiercely. She had the mindset of ‘the more the merrier’ and I was all about love, more and merry! She was a kindred spirit that never met a stranger. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her. Rest easy my friend , your work here is done. Love, Tami 2
