I just got the news today and it happened last week. I live in Florida now and I am truely truely sad at the news. I waited on Dean and Iola for 10 years at Critics and they became apart of my family. They came to my kids birthdays and sacraments, holidays.Dean was like my grandpa that I lost so many years ago. I talked with him three weeks ago and he sounded bad but still this was a shock. I hope he is at peace now. And I hope Iola will carry on like he would want her to. He took such good care of her. Please know my thoughts are with all of you and I would love to hear from someone if you can. Dean filled me in on Iola and I would love for someone to still do that.I will miss him so much even though I am this far away.Rest in peace my dear friend.
Suzanne and family
MAY HE NOT SUFFER NO MORE AND BE IN PEACE.
To the family I just wanted to say I am sorry for your loss. I have always felt blessed for the opportunity to get to know both Dean and Iola at Critics. Dean was an honorable man who always had the best intentions for everyone he cared about.
Again I am sorry
