Still Thinking of You Dean
Dean was a great individual to be around. Seems like nothing could bother him he always had a smile on his face. We weren’t real close we worked together, had a few beers together and just wanted to do our time and go home to our loved ones. Dean was a hard worker, someone who would help you out if you asked or even if you did not. I relive the day he died over and over in my mind. I remember hearing the news of his truck going off a hill and of his death. There was a great loss that day. Dean you will be forever be missed.
