I was 4 years old, old enough to know my real father wanted absolutely nothing to do with me! We we're all out to eat and out of nowhere I said to Dean " will you be my dad? I want to call you dad!" Dean smiled from ear to ear and bursted out "Yes, yes, my sweetheart! You will be MY daughter for the rest of our lives! I will always love you!"

You are loved and will be greatly missed. There are too many memories to choose but one thing I did admire about you was your love for family. You would literally give the shirt off your back to help someone. "Call me if you need help with anything but money" is what you always said. Love you Dean!

Dean was comical and a true "cut up"......just like his daddy. Any time I hear "get 'er done" I always think of Dean as he would often make that statement. He will definitely be missed. Sending up prayers for his family. Love ya'll!!
