All the Dean family members,
     Steve and I remember Henry's involvement at the Strasburg Presbyterian 
Church; he was a faithful and diligent servant.  I know he was so proud of
his family and their roles in the community(following his example).  May your
memories bring you COMFORT and PEACE in the days to come.
