  1. My condolences to the family. Your Mom was a wonderful sweet lady. I enjoyed the years that I worked with her at Dickinson Medical Clinic.

  2. Meeting Dixie on her visit to the zoo in Omaha was delightful. Obviously she was incredibly proud of Ed's work. One year, she sent a Christmas box to his office and called the lab to be certain it made it. Such a mom thing to do! My sympathies to all those missing this wonderful woman.

  3. I only had the opportunity to meet Dixie the one time, upon her visit to Omaha. She was very warm, funny, and outgoing and it was obvious how much love and pride she had in her family, which was clearly reciprocated. She has left a lasting impression, as I'm sure everyone who knew her would agree.

  4. Dixie was an incredible lady, one whom I shall never forget. She always opened her home and her heart to others. So much fun to be around. She will be missed. My sincere condolences to the entire family – my thoughts are with you during this time, and always.

    Your mom was a special lady. She supported so many organizations and people, including me.
    I know you will miss her greatly. She will expect you to carry on with her volunteer work at the organizations of your choice.
    I pray God will bless you and yours in the difficult days to come. Let me hear from you from time to time and if you should
    ever need anything, let me know!
