So sorry for the loss of both Dean and Harold. Always looked forward to seeing them at the Krisell family reunions. Keeping the family in my prayers. They're probably visiting with Florence and Harley Camp and my parents R.L. and Jeanne Henderson. Melinda Henderson

Sorry to hear of your loss, both Dean and Harold going to Glory is precious but they are going to be missed. They were very close to our family. The tales that Dean used to tell about my mom, her and the guys were funny and I will cherish them always. Love, Meredith and Family
