Oh Deanie,
I just found out that you are gone. My heart is aching. You were my adopted twin as we shared the same birthday. You were one of our best friends ever. We will forever miss that funny laugh and always making us laugh. We love you Dean. RIP our friend.

My prayers go out to the family in this time of loss. The bible tells us to "rejoice with people who rejoice; weep with people who weep." (Romans 12:15) I share your grief.

Dean--I had the privilege of getting to know you because of the friendship I have shared with your sister, Donna, the past 20 years. You will be missed Dean! You were a blessing to your father and mother in the loving care you provided. I do count if all joy in knowing you and look forward to seeing you again some day!!!

I will never forget packing up the El Camino with Neil Young and Jackson Browne on cassettes, heading to Arizona! Those were the best of times. My heart goes out to your family.

January 26, 2013's been a long, long time.....and it makes me sad to think you've gone already....way too young for that. It was fun looking through these old many of the school pictures I still have (with the little captions on the back). You were the good looking guy in youth group, but I'm glad for all the ping-pong tournaments, times around the alter, youth group, motor cycle rides...and just hanging out. These are the things I remember most about you....always a gentle spirit and fun to be with you. Sounds like AZ was a good move for you!......Till we meet again!!!

Love you!

Dean I am so sorry to hear the sad news. We had a lot good times together. It's hard to think our gang is now one less but I know you're in a better place and you can spend some time with your dad. I will miss you; your memories will be in my heart forever. Till we meet again. Love you
