  • Barbara Harrison Emerson Delores and family, Bob and i send our heartfelt sympathy to you and your families. We have so many fond memories of Dean. One of my first is your beautiful wedding. Remember being a flower girls even though we were only 4. Remember the dance and the beautiful bride. So many family visits to Marie's and your home and family reunions over the years. Dean was always so good at staying in touch. Living in Texas certainly limited our exposure to your family but my mother and dad were so fond of Dean and all of you and you were all always so kind and thoughtful to them. I am so sorry I am not able to attend the service but will be having a mass said for Dean and certainly will be thinking of you all. We send our sympathy and love from Texas. Barbara Harrison Emerson
  • Lin Winterowd Dear Dunn family - my heart goes out to you at this most painful time. I only knew him casually through church, but I have no doubt that he will be sorely missed by many, many people. I never saw Dean but he didn't have a big smile on his face, and that is how I will always remember him. May God grant you his comfort and peace and strength to endure the grief you must now be feeling. All of us share with you this loss.
