David, so sorry for your loss of your lovely Deanna.I have so so many precious memories of mine and Deanna's friendship from grade school thru high school. Her parents, Bill and Pauline were like adopted secondary parents to me. . Memories of the store on Baldwin Ave. And their living residence. Spent lots of quality time there, I can close my eyes and smell Pauline cooking bacon, eggs and the best gravy ever. As you know she was a great cook! As I sit here, I am trying to think about how we let treasured friends become lost to us. And even so, it doesn't mean that I never remembered all the good times we had. All too numerous to recount here. She was a lovely person thru and thru. Her laugh was infectous, , her eye for style, her caring giving spirit just a small part of all that was Deanna. And a friendship I will cherish always, Her life well lived as an RN, , thru the profession she chose ,it was so her! I am glad she married you, you were a great guy in the Nebo days of my youth. You and your family will be in my prayers. May your precious memories of her being comfort to you in your path of grief. May God give you His abundant grace and peace forevermore.. Your friend of days gone by.
