Dewain, God must have needed you more in heaven then we needed you here. I hope your in a band or singing for everyone in heaven. You were an awesome RE instructor, Broker and friend. I learned a lot from you. You are going to be missed a lot. I laugh, every time I think about all the times Bear and I would stop by your house to visit. Bear would sneak up your steps and look at you as if to say "don't let my mom see me do this". Then when I would look for her, she would be on the top landing looking down at us and you would say "She has my permission to roam the house and chase the cat". I would yell at her to come down and a few minutes later she would sneak back up the stairs. I hope she met you at the golden gates of heaven. Watch over each other till we meet again.
