I remember when I first moved back to Tyler and began to attend Dean. He would always tell me how he remembered my Mother and how she could sing. I visited with him in Wills Point back in the late Fall. He was so cheerful and I could tell all of the nurses loved him so. He was a good man. I know he is having a beautiful reunion...til I see him again.
