Mr. Dean was my favorite customer at the bank that I worked at. He was always so nice and we had many fun and funny conversations. I have thought of him often in the years since I left the bank. He touched my life as I know he touched others.

We were just talking about Doug. Didn't realize he had died. Was wondering how he was doing. Now we know, he is doing great!! My husband and I knew him from the EP senior center. Spent many hours with him in the fitness room. May he rest in peace.!

To Paul and family, My sincere thoughts and wishes go to you and your family in this time of loss. I appreciate that it must have been especially difficult given limits to seeing our elders during this pandemic. Blessings, Ann H.
