In Loving Memory of Dean J. Prescott

Nov. 25, 1962 to Aug. 18, 2008 There were no farewell words spoken, I had no chance to say goodbye. You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness and tears still secretly flow. I think of you in silence. I often speak your name. Now all I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Everyday you are in my mind. Our time together was far too short, but we had very good times. Your memory is a treasure which I will never let go. You’re always in my heart. I miss you so much.


Thank you Many many thanks for all the cards and best wishes for our 60th wedding anniversary. A big thank you to our wonderful family for making it so special. Leonard and Kay Pistek

Thank you Thank you to all who came or sent a gift or card to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary. It was great to hear from so many old friends. Thanks again, — Glenn and Ethel Endriss
