Dear Friends,

Thank you all so much for 30 years of fun.  I’ve gotten to know so many people who have become great friends over the years.  We’ve shared good times as well as hard times.  We’ve cried together, and laughed so hard we’ve cried.  Never have I experienced so many different situations with so many different people.  I may never plant another flower, unplug another drain, paint another wall, plan another party or mop another floor on campus, but I will remember it always.  Thanks for all the cards, gifts and well wishes.  And always remember this “Live, laugh and love like there is no tomorrow, because sometimes there really isn’t.”

Love,  Dee Couse
