So very sorry to learn of Dexter's passing. Have been away from Floyd for a long time, but I remember all of you Slusher siblings quite well: rode same school bus. Shirlene was a good friend during our high school days. Remember bumping into Dexter at Hardies one night several years ago. Many, many prayers!
