Remembering a wonderful husband and dad on the 22 anniversary of your death. Not a day goes by that we don't think of you. Although our time as a family was not as long as we planned, we know God had greater plans for you. We miss you so much but are so thankful for the precious memories that will remain with us forever. The Lord has been beside us every step of the way and all we can do is Thank Him. You would be(are) so proud of our son. He is beginning his 1st internship over the summer and continuing his education. We are doing the best we can but you are always in our hearts as we carry on with our lives. Until we meet again...

All our love~Connie & Noah Dean
