I will miss Dean very much. I worked with him in the office at Matthews Intl. and he was very kind. Dean, Nancy and Eric all came to every company picnic we had and it was always a joy to see them. He was a good man.

Mr. Dean was a fine Christian man, who had so much love & compassion, in his heart, for others.
He, Nancy & Eric were our next door neighbors in Cloverdale, for many years.
They were always loving, special parents, to Eric & his special needs.
We will miss him, but we know, he is happy, being with Nancy, & his Heavenly Father.

Thank you, Mr. Dean & Mrs. Nancy, for being such special friends, in our family's lives.
