Sending my deepest condolences to all the family of Victor Dean, especially to Pat. It has been many years since I last saw any of your family, but my Prayer and sympathy are with you all. I have many fond memories from my childhood of going to Oblong for family dinners, the boys going rabbit hunting, and to just visit with Uncle Clyde and Aunt Eva. Treasure your memories also.
