Aunt Dean was always a sweet aunt but when she came to work at Hampton & Crain she became our rock. We were so blessed. Her work was done with the absolute utmost care and always done right. We spent 28 years together every day and I loved her, appreciated her and respected her so much. She always wore a smile, we could set the clock by her coming and going and sometimes I’m sure we didn’t thank her nearly enough. .Love you auntie!
