 My prayers and sympathies for Deans family.  As we grew up together he always reminded me that I was a day older than him.  Our mothers were in the same room when we were born.  Dean loved his family and I pray for peace and comfort for them.  {{{HUGGS}}}, Janet.

Dearest Janet, Melissa, and Taylor -
Your husband, dad, and grandpa was a dear friend while we worked together at LuK in the early 2000's.  I  will treasure fond memories of the stories and the wisdom he would share.  He was always ready to help and to share a laugh and a smile -- no matter what was going on.   I know  I am a better person for knowing and working with Dean.
May God hold you in the palm of His hand and comfort you during this time of sorrow and loss.  Blessings,  Lesa Forbes
