To a great lady who lived next door most of my growing up life. I used to stop over just to talk to her. Our families often comingled. Dean taught me to play Chess and got me to join the scouts. As a teacher, she was wonderful to know. I remember my first vacation bible class at her church. Pretty amazing she lived a full life. She was a pretty amazing woman. I am sure heaven is pleased to have her. My heart goes out to Kaye and her wonderful family.
