Uncle Dean, I know I don't have too many memories with you, but I do remember you and Dennis always telling me to stay away from those boys when I was younger. You and Pap always walked my family and I out when we were leaving the Christmas Eve dinner as well. I cherish the stories my mother and father tell me of you. You were a great man and you will be missed deeply by me and my family. We love you.
Your niece, Jasmine

We laid to rest the most amazing, caring, loving, hardworking and also most stubborn man I have ever known :). He was everything for me, my Daddy, my best friend and my hero. I wanted to be just like him from the time I was a little girl. Now I will spend the rest of my days instilling all the greatest traits of him in my son Ethan. To our first Christmas without him, may him and God give me the strength I am going to need to get thru this. "First Man I Ever Loved....My Daddy!" I miss you and love you oh so much!!

Peg, Deana, Carrie. I will never forget your father. I will always remember him as, Honest, Loving, and soft spoken. As you go from here on into the future. May you have all the Beautiful moments of your life with him always at your fingertips. When you think you've forgotten something, reach out your hand and your Dad will fill it once again, curl your fingers tight, never let go, for he will never let you go. May you always be aware of him, he is there. I love you girls with all my heart. Wish i could have been there for you. Circumstances being what they are, i could not. Please believe me, he will be with you always, as my Father is with me. <3
