My deepest sympathy to Bud and to your children. Deane was the sweetest, gentlest, most caring person. We first met at Lord & Taylor, which must have been 40 years ago. We sat in the same church pew every Sunday for dozens of years. I was jolted to see her obituary today and will forever remember Deane and her always sweet smile. God bless her with eternal rest and may His Perpetual Light shine upon her.
