Marilyn, Mauna, and Renee,
I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to let our husband and father go. I have some pleasant memories of the wondeful playhouse Dean built for you girls and how much fun we had playing in it. He was definitely a good father and I'm sure a wonderful grandfather. Please allow his angel to walk beside you over the coming days to help ease the pain you are feeling.
With Love & Friendship,
