My condolences to the entire family in the death of Bobby Dean. I knew Bobby my entire life--went to Sunday School with him, Cleveland School and we graduated together. I knew all of his family. He was a good person and cheerful most of the time I ever saw him. I enjoyed talking with him and keeping up with his family, our classmates and old times. Godspeed to a life well lived.Love and Prayers to all the family. He will indeed be missed.FondlyCharlene Langdon Lee
