So sorry for your loss Robbi.

Condolences to RD’s family and his dear friend Freda. May Jesus wrap you in his loving arms and give you peace as he has Dean. I know Rita greeted him to heaven with open arms.

Dean was a great man, he will be missed, my best to his family,

Our deepest sympathies to the family.
Fond memories of your dad.
Especially building the heath kit colored tv, with
Wired remote that strung across the floor!
That was pretty high tech back then.
I smile when I think of that,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Steve and Arlene Oxenrider.

Our deepest condolences to all of you Aunt Freda. What a kind man Dean was and we are so happy
to have known him. Sending hugs and prayers your way.
Love Lisa Dadas and Family
