Dean it was a pleasure being your neighbor for the past 12 years and watching you grow into a nice young man who cares for others. You were always so kind to my kids and always made them feel comfortable. I enjoyed the times we (you and your brother and sister) played basketball in front of your home - that is until the city asked that we not play on "their" extension and in the street :-) You were a great example to my boys - Thank you! I am sad you are gone, but glad for the time my family and I got to know you. Rest in the arms of the Lord my friend. May God's peace which passes all understanding comfort your mom, dad, sister, brother and all your family and many, many friends! Respectfully and Lovingly, Bill Smith, Jr.
