      Happy Birthday Dixie,
      What a classy lady you are! You have always been such an example to me of elegant!
      In our High School seminary there was an award given every year to the student the teachers voted that had gone the extra mile. I really feel like you are this kind of person in everything you do – you really go the extra mile.
      Something you taught me was when you didn’t even know it; when you pray you often say, that you are grateful and thankful, these two words are really not the same and I pondered them after hearing you and I can say that I have really grown by doing so.
      I could go on forever but just know that you are an amazing woman in my life, your beautiful singing voice, your humility, your powerful lessons, your dedication to family, your love of the Lord, your sacrifice and devotion to all our Fathers children! Thank you! I am “grateful and thankful” for having you for a dear friend!!
      Love Elaine Crane

    Dear Dixie,
    We were excited to get such a cute birthday card with your beautiful picture on it. We can’t believe how much time has passed by. We also miss seeing you and Harvey.
    Our thoughts of you go back many years and the kindnesses you did for my mother.
    We always thought of you as being a very service minded individual who always had a very king understanding heart and love for their fellow man. You were always personable and thoughtful of others. You taught you children the same wonderful values that you have.
    We send our heartfelt congratulations to you on this your 80th birthday!.


    Jim and Florence Diamond
    Thank you for being a wonderful example in our lives

    How did we get to be this age!! Wasn’t it just a few years ago we were sitting on the sofa in Grandma’s living room planning the horse ranch we would have when we were older (am I just imaging sitting on Grandma’s sofa… she never let anyone go in that room… right!)😊 I have been thinking for two days about what I would want to write to you on this special and beautiful occasion but it would have to be a short novel. You have been a part of my life for it’s entirety. You are my sister/aunt and I have so many many memories. I am so grateful that God put us together as family. Auntie Dixie you are an amazingly kind and beautiful woman. Your heart is bigger than you are in stature. Jerry refers to you as my “cute little Aunt.” Your many friends and their kind memories of you are a testament to the honest, loving and generous person you are. You always remember a special occasion with a special little hand picked card or gift and are there to offer a helping hand whenever you see the need. They say that our time is the greatest gift we can give someone because you are giving them a part of yourself that you can never get back. You always have time for others. You don’t just talk the talk you walk the walk! Happy 80th. Hope we can visit this summer and reminisce over some of the memories.
    Love you so very much!!
    Jerry and Nany

    Dixie (My Second Mom),
    On this special day, I want you to know that you have been a role model and you have influenced my life in so many ways. I am thankful and blessed to have had the opportunity to be able to grow-up right next door and have Sandra as my best friend and you as my second mom. I have so many found and precious memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. You are an example of strength, kindness, encouragement and love. I hope your birthday is one blessing after another. With a loving heart and warm embrace, I send my birthday wishes to the Best Second Mom ever.
    All My Love,
    Nancy (Brackenbury) Bailey

You and your big beautiful family are always in my thoughts; Thank you for always being such a loving, generous and kind soul To me and my family!

    Happy birthday, Aunt Dixie! What a wonderful aunt and friend you have been for decades! I have enjoyed all the many visits I’ve had at your home and at family gatherings and such. You have always been so warm and inviting and down to earth. You were always able to talk to my sisters and me as if we were great friends, and that is pretty special. I love you!

    Dear Dixie – wishing you a very special day and many more happy healthy days ahead. It has been a joy to talk with you on the phone and look at the photos you sent. I clicked onto the video but I do not have a camera or a microphone and was not able to use the “chat”. Take care and enjoy the days ahead with family and friends.

    Happiest of birthdays Aunt Dixie. I am so disappointed I wasn’t able to join the Zoom session. We lost power and internet for several hours. It was restored about 45 minutes too late for me to chat with everyone. I hope you had a great time. I downloaded the video to my hard drive. Love you!!

    You are such an incredible person and have so much love to spread. We have such fond memories of you taking care of us and our new born babies at the hospital each time they were born. It didn’t matter if you were assigned to be our nurse or if you were just on the floor at the time and knew we were there. We kept having kids just so we could come in and see you.
    You also have been such a great influence to some of our kids as their primary teacher. And an incredible influence to us in general.
    We wish you the happiest of birthdays and are so blessed to know you and call you friend. 80 years is a so amazing! While I know that I won’t be wearing high heels at 80 (Lori might), I hope that I can achieve all the rest of your wonderful qualities by then. Happy Birthday!
    Love Joel and Lori Melton and Family.

    We love you!
    Trevor, Dayna and family
