I wish you well , I am sorry again Jon

Oh NO, Sandy JUST told me,. How heartbreaking. Dean was such a great guy. When he opened the business he greeted everybody with such hearty " hello "
The first time I went in he called me Young lady, and I was a patron for as long as I lived there. Then it turned out he was a neighbor, Loved his kids, especially Joe & Nicole, who I had in school.
Hope you are all coping.
Please know, that even though

Marcy, I was looking for a picture of my mom just a minute ago and ran across this. I'm so so sorry for your loss. I had no idea that this had occured. I did not remember you had married Dean and just read the story about his life and saw your name and that you have been married for 27 years. Wow. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family in your time of loss. Warmest Regards, An old friend. Jim Blades

Our sincerest condolences Ramona, Michael & Taylor...
