I always enjoyed my conversations with both. Now there together. Praying for all the family . Hugs to Becky, John and Brian. Brian he was so proud of you working at the Wesley House. Treasured memories!

Mr Deas was a great man I lived down the road from him and his family. He use to let us go fishing in his catfish pond. He traded a lot at my dads store in Coke Texas he was a very kind hearted man. Sorry for your loss God Bless. David Holt
