A lot of my memories of childhood came from Dean watching over me as a kid. She would always make me open face peanut butter sandwiches while I watched Mario Bros on TV and Zelda on fridays. Lost my first tooth there, my first black eye when learning to catch with James. Sleeping over at times on the bedroom floor with Jessie. I could go on forever... I will never forget her loving soul and how she made me feel like one of her kids.

Mis. Dean,

I’m glad I got to work with you these past 5 years at Cracker Barrel. You were one of a kind and it won’t be the same without you. I know you loved your family and dogs very much. I’m sad to hear you had to leave us but God needed you more. I pray your loved ones find peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Fly high sweet angel.

I worked with her at Wendy’s in Richfield and she was my waitress countless times at Cracker Barrel. Even though she seen numerous people daily, she always remembered me when she seen me and would ask about my kids. I just love her so much. She was always so nice, caring, and friendly to me! She will be missed greatly!

Mrs. Dean,
You were always one that I could talk to. You were the first and only person that I told I was leaving Cracker Barrel after 10 years. Many conversations were had between the two of us about life, relationships, and goals. Thank you for seeing in me what I didn’t always see. You were great and you will be deeply missed. Rest well my friend. Rest well.
