Carole, Steve, Mark and families, Raymond, Sharon and I are all so sorry for the loss of Dean. As kids, we all had so much fun together. He showed us all around the farm, the only farm us city slickers ever saw. So many great memories with Dean. He will be missed by many. You are all in our prayers. Much love and hugs.
