  9. Dear Ator family…I am so saddened to hear of your loss. I first knew Deda when your family lived out on Woodland Drive and we lived at the end in the cul de sac. Then I got to know her again when I went to work at Burleson HS. We had lots of good talks…about family, natural herbal remedies, her ability to make slot machines work in her favor, and oh, yes, work! She was a beautiful person, inside and out. Even though she will be greatly missed, she is now at peace without pain. May God bless all of you and help you through the grieving.

  23. My prayers are with your lovely family! What a sweet, delightful lady. I enjoyed working with her while at BHS. Watching her kids grow up, graduate, and then create families of their own was one of her proudest moments. God Bless!
