Ms. Dixie was one of the sweetest, kindest people we've ever known. She and her husband, Bob, owned and operated Rucksack Military Surplus for years. For a little boy so enamored with the military and police, going to Rucksack was a dream come true for Will and from the time he could walk, Bob and Dixie welcomed him, welcomed us, with open arms. He and I spent hours looking through all the stuff and talking to them. Bob used his prized dog tag machine to make Will's first set of dog tags when he was probably 4 or 5 years old, and when she checked him out, Dixie always gave Will "the special law enforcement discount," which, for a kid, is a really big deal. We visited and shopped with them over the years until they sold the store and we kept up with them on Facebook. We were heartbroken when Bob passed and our hearts are broken again with the loss of Dixie, but; we rejoice that they're together again. We're thinking of and praying for all the family, especially my old high school friend, Cheryl, and sweet Vicki. May God give you all the peace that passes understanding as you grieve the loss of this very special and wonderful lady. She'll be missed by many and while earth will be diminished by her absence, heaven is much richer for her presence.

So sad to hear of Ms Dixie’s passing. My late husband, Wayne Seymour, thought the world of her and her husband. We went to Rucksack often not only to shop but more so that Wayne could talk to her and ask about her husband. I am sure she is having a wonderful reunion with so many right now. My prayers to the family.
