    Your Condolence Message::
    Janet, Penny, Betty and families so sorry to hear about Dad. I have many fond memories of both Uncle Dean & Aunt Mary. Spent a fair amount of time on Third St. I always remember all the different things that your Dad did. Wine making, growing those beautiful violets, gardening(remember the sunflowers?), all of his woodworking. I really appreciate the attention that he gave Shawn when she lived in Shelby during her college years. I know Gary always liked talking to Uncle Dean about their mutual interests. Will be thinking about all of you during this time.
