“My deepest sympathies to Aunt Doris and the rest of the family. I have wonderful memories from childhood of being together when our families (Harvey, Wilma, and "the girls"--my sisters and I) came to visit over holidays or summers. Uncle Dean was a wonderful, kind, and giving man. He will be missed! You are in my prayers.
