Condolence From: Carrie Denby
Condolence: This amazing woman always had a beautiful light around her. I am blessed to have known Deanna. She was a customer at Walgreens throughout the dozen years that I worked there. She was always smiling even through the tears when times were troubled. She was my favorite. Love and prayers to your family. Thank you for sharing this amazing lady with us.

Condolence: Dear Bussey family, I am so sorry for your loss. Dee was such a kind, sweet person. I am a former classmate of hers. I was so glad to see her back in 2006 at our 50th class reunion. My heart goes out to you all. I'm sure the angels in heaven have welcomed her with open arms.

Condolence From: Bert Donovan
Condolence: Dee was a kind and generous soul. Every summer for years, we talked and laughed while sitting on her deck, watching the kids fish, or kayak on the lake. Just last summer, Jack caught a huge Bass, and the picture we have of Dee, Jack, and the fish, will be cherished forever, it was a such a great moment. Dee was more excited than anyone, it was beautiful to watch. We will miss her dearly. Our deepest sympathy to the Bussey family, may she rest in peace.

Condolence From: Dawn Donovan
Condolence: Dee was a beautiful person inside and out. I had heard of her through the family and got to finally make her acquaintance this past summer one beautiful afternoon. Spending a couple of hours with her, we become instant friends, as if we were long time ones. She acted as if she wasn’t bound at all in a chair and had not a care in the world. She exuded joy and love and pure gratitude for the moment we were in. I can just imagine the impact she had on others who had the blessing of more times with her! Thank you Lord for the opportunity to meet Dee, one of God’s dear ones!

Condolence From: Vicki and Butch Hall
Condolence: To Dee's Family: If we had to sum up Dee in one word it would be AMAZING! Our time with her at the beach was always so special and will be forever cherished. We feel very fortunate to have gotten to know many of you when you visited her in Florida - It was clear Dee had raised beautiful and loving children and also had loving brothers and sisters as we got to know Fred, Margo and Kat too. I always told her "I wanted to be just like her when I grow up!", but I will never be able to achieve that unrealistic goal as there will always be only ONE Dee. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We will miss her very much.

Much love, Vicki and Butch

Condolence: I was in Panama City Beach for a few days in December and Dee was the only other person staying at Sands of Laguna at the time. Although we had not met I brought her the mail and stopped by to see if she needed anything. We had a nice conversation and I admire the strength and friendliness she displayed in the face of her health struggles. Rest in Peace.

Condolence: Thinking of your family with love and understand your grief. I know this must be a very difficult and demanding time for all of you. Your mother was a remarkable person and this is the way she will be remembered. My dear Lord, make way for this wonderful woman.

Condolence: My condolences to the family of Dee. I had the pleasure and opportunity of Bruce and Dee staying at my property in Fla for a number of years. Dee was such a special person and I certainly enjoyed and loved our friendship.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
