Dean was a GREAT friend and he and Judy always made us feel like family. He had a great sense of humor and a Great sense of being, and I will always miss our morning coffee and sausage biscuit at McDonalds. He was such a giving person and I pray for comfort for Judy, Stephen and Menecia. This is a HUGE loss to all. Rest in Peace Deano! God's Speed!
