    I will miss this man and the smile that always greeted me and family. I am so happy he is with your mom and loved ones on the other side. I hope they are dancing. RIP Dear Dean

  • I’m going to miss talking to him. He was a great man. God bless his family and friends, may they remember the beautiful memories they had together. Rest in peace Dean.

  • I’m very sorry for your loss. I wanted to offer you and your family some comfort from the Bible. In John 11:25 Jesus said: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” I hope you can find some comfort in the Bible’s promise that we will see our dead loved ones again.
