    Hi Dad,
    It's been a year and I can't believe it. It seems like yesterday that I lost you. I miss you and think of you every day.

    Love always

    I was so sorry to hear of Dean's passing. I'm glad both of you were able to come to our 55th Class Reunion. I was so pleased to hear from Dean after the reunion telling me how much he enjoyed viewing the video I made up for him and all the other classmates who were also there at the reunion. He was a great guy and he will certainly be missed by all who knew him.

    So Very Sorry!

    I Walked Along A Beach At
    Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point),
    Mexico Picking Up Seashells.
    The Colors Were So Beautiful
    I Just Had To Take Some Home.
    So Peaceful,
    Just The Surf Slapping Against The Rocks.
    These Seashells Once Housed
    A Beautiful Sea Creature.
    ... A Beautiful Memory;
    ... A Wonderful Person To Remember,
    As Is Dean Lee Pethick
