Aunt Evelyn & family, I am sorry for the loss you must feel at Dean's death. I can remember him, as a niece, as one who was funny, worked hard for his family and loved them well. I am glad to have the memories I do have of Dean & Evelyn & cousins. You all made growing up fun. :) I know that with the sadness we all feel, we do not grieve as those who have no hope. Knowing Dean is with God and enjoying his presence is comfort indeed. Please know I am praying for you all.
