Dear Jane and. Family, We were very sorry to hear about Deane. However, we know what a joyful reunion he is having in heaven. Jesus greeting him with open arms and a chorus of angels behind him. Deane was a friend to everyone he knew. If you needed help with anything, he would find a way to help you. He was proud of his Christian faith and shared it with many who he knew. We were proud to call him cousin and he became one of the family when he married Jane. We will keep you in our prayers and hope you keep praying for us.
