We are keeping you in our hearts and prayers. Gary Dean was a good man and a wonderful nephew. He was such a help to Mom when she lived in Belle and all of us lived too far away to get there often enough. Just knowing you two were close helped ease our concerns for her and Aunt Vera. We appreciated you both so much. I know he spent many hours of his time to do those two yards and all the other things he did for them. Mom sends her love, and we do, too. God bless you! --Donna Ann and Neal
