"My sister in many ways was an exceptional human being. She was kind, thoughtful and I never knew anyone that disliked her.
We are 7 years apart and she had to babysit me periodically and I could be a brat. The one thing that was never in doubt was her love of her 3 sons and her grandchildren. Never a discouraging word came out her mouth.
I feel very blessed to have had DeLee as my sister and I will miss her greatly.
