Part of Dee’s pleasures was playing softball, following the Astros and watching her nephews play sports. She was an avid gardener and could tell you the name of most Texas wildflowers. Another passion was being able to travel with her constant companion, Bo. A bichon/poodle mix that is now leading her on to their next great journey.
