I am so sorry to hear of Bobby Dean’s passing. Our parents were friends and he and I had known each other since we were very small. I remember my Dad taking me with him to Forsan when he would go there for the day for work. I would stay with Bobby Dean and Ada Dean for the day. We always enjoyed seeing each other. A few years ago, Bobby Dean found me at my Uncle’s funeral in Big Lake and we got to have a nice visit. My prayers are with each of you as go through this difficult time.
