I wasn’t ready to say goodbye and even one week later I can’t believe you aren’t here. I have said many prayers for you and I am comforted knowing you aren’t in pain anymore. My life will never be the same without you and will always carry you in my heart and cherish the beautiful memories we shared especially on the golf course. I learned a lot from you dad and I know how much you loved me. I know you are with the Lord dad and some day we will be with each other again. In the mean time practice your golf game so you are ready for me. I love you with all my heart dad and I will never forget you.

I consider Dean to be, by far, one of the finest examples of a husband, father and friend that I have ever had the pleasure to know. My heart goes out to my wonderful friend Betty, and her family, at this time of sorrow. I knew Dean well, and I knew he placed his family before himself. May our Heavenly Father comfort all of you . I will miss him greatly. Love, Sandy
