It is depressing how many people like Kevin Lee there are who let their personal prejudice overwhelm any sense of humanity.

I heard her sing and she was magnificent!

Truly sorry about great the loss. I met Dee Dee Bellson briefly at Louie Bellson's funeral. I worked with Louie Bellson as a singer and he would mention her name periodically. She also sang for a dear friend of mine on many of his musical projects and he loved working with her. What a shock to lose her so young.

When Aunt Doris called me on Monday morning about Dee Dee, I was in a state of shock. She had such a sweet and wonderful personality. By the way she died on her dad's birthday. This is soooooooo overwhelming.
Now the whole family is up in heaven rejoicing together with the rest of the Bailey's, Aunt Virgie, Aunt Eura and Billy also.

What comes to my memory is when Aunt Dick was in Hello Dolly. The show was in Philadelphia and after the run of the play, she had a party for Tony and Dee Dee and all of the cousins in Philly. It was soooooooooo wonderful and awesome. I can still hear her and Tony laughing.

Love you Dee Dee

Cousins Alicia and Acacia and Uncle Al.
