    I have fond memories of Lloyd Dean in school even though I was in the class of 1959. I also remember being in church events with him, his parents being in the same Sunday School class as mine, family events I attended with Melba etc. He also sold my husband and I furniture at Woody’s in Dumas. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Donna, I have been on this road of a widow for 14 years; I will not lie and tell you it is easy or time-will-heal. I heard a pastor say one time and have never forgotten “Time doesn’t heal but it helps us learn to cope with it.” I will assure with no doubts, our God is good and will be right beside you every step you take. God bless you and I will pray for you daily.

    The Mills family lived across the street from mine in Dumas.
    Our neighborhood was close as friends and neighbors.
    I have fond memories of those days on Zauk street.
    My deepest sympathy to the family.
    Martha Miers Walter
