Uncle Dean, you touched the lives of many with your good nature, your humor, and your kindness of passing on to others the Salvation of the Lord. Sooner than we know, we'll catch up with you again. Until then, we'll miss you like crazy but are happy that you now get to enjoy yourself with all those you love and lost before. ....and by the way, I'll keep my promise of taking apples to give to your horses at the farm!

With all my heart....your niece, Lisa....
