I just wanted to wish you all my condolences at your loss. It has been a very long time since I was living in the Burnsville area and have seen you all and Dean in person. But when I think of those Rockcreek through East years, you are a warm part of that story and those memories. Take care. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
