A few years ago I was privileged to meet "Granny" through her grand-daughter Connie. Dean made me feel so welcome in her home! When I admired some coffee cups she had, she gave them to me. She invited me to come back and said we would visit the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, but I never did. That is a regret I will always have. I loved her total acceptance of others and her sense of humor most of all. Her place in heaven is reserved for sure.

I am so Blessed to have gotten to meet and spend time with grandma Dean. She reminded me of my grandma growing up. We had a lot of fun playing uno cards. Especially uno dare, she kept" daring" me to sing a country song. After about the 5th dare I asked her if she really wanted me to sing, and she said yes. Of all the songs I know, the only one that would come to my mind was the song from the jaws movie. I sang it, and she said it was beautiful. I'm not so sure, but she was happy so I was happy. That was Friday night. As we parted we were all still laughing and having a great time.
I will truly miss you sweet lady. Please keep my grandma and aunt judy company until we all meet again. I will always love you.

I am a very shy person when I am around new people. When I first met mom, she kind of reminded me of my grandma. Within the first five minutes of being with her, she made me feel at ease and felt like I had known her all of my life. She is such a special person and has made her daughter, Patsy, a special person as well. I wish I could have spent more time with Dean. My thoughts, prayers and love to Dean's family. I will always remember you. God bless you all.

I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Grandma Hart, one of my favorite memories of her was she always liked my shirts and insisted that I take it off and give to her.....even my work shirt, but I told her she would have to go to work to get one for herself.... I will truly miss her but will never forget the fun, comical loving woman we called Grandma! RIP.... ❤❤❤❤💖💖
