My prayers and condolences. Dee and I accepted Christ as our Saviour the same night at Crowder Springs Baptist church. We were baptized the same time in Ed Lane's farm pond. We both attended the one-room school house in Crowder Springs and graduated high school together. I always considered Dee a very good friend, although we didn't get to see each other very much after we graduated. He will be missed in my heart. Blessings to the family.

To all of the family of Dee,s, It was such a shock to read about Dee. You know my prayers are with all of you. We were raised up together, and have loved all of you like my own brothers and sisters. I use to have pictures of Dee and I when he graduated from HS at Boswell. We haven't seen each other for many years, but was always in my mind, and he was always like a brother and a good friend to me. He is going to be missed very much, but the Good Lord decided to help ease his pain. God Bless all of you and again, my prayers are with all of you. Love all of you very much.
