My BEST friend, my brother ,my gift from God. Dean was so much to me, I Loved him with all my soul. He loved people inspite of, not because of. Deano will be missed greatly. I thank God for blessing me with such an Angel of a man. He served his people well. God is so pleased with him. He always asked "What I can do for you?" All the time he was blessings me with his smile and big o loving heart. I ask God to bless the family with comfort and strength. I will miss you at Valley Park Manor.
