  1. Dean and Family, I just wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I am sorry that I didn't get by in person to see you. Sincerely, Leslie Henderson Jones

  2. Mrs. Goforth was one of my favorite teachers. I still think of her often. If she touched my life in such a way, I am sure there are hundreds of others she touched. She was a wonderful person and a great teacher. My sympathy to Dean and all the family.
