Dear Friends of Dean
Life can change in a heartbeat. It can be a cliché saying but when we experience it personally, it grips hard at our heartstrings.
Dean’s life was cut way too short on Wednesday 19 of April.
We are all in shock and grappling with the magnitude of this life changing event. We would like to thank you all for the outpouring of support, we have felt incredibly embraced in this time when we need to go slow, grieve and begin to adjust.
This page is dedicated to Dean, for you all to share your memories of Dean walking alongside you. These stories will encourage us all as we adjust and keep his legacy alive within. Share as much or as little as you feel comfortable because Dean loved nothing more than sharing events and life changing experiences with those around him.
Be kind to yourselves as you navigate your own journeys of grief. It will take time; it will come in waves. It may feel that the pain will never go away and that life will never be the same. We encourage you to reach out to those people in your life that are closest to you, and if they are hard to find, make sure you let us know in some way. Emotions are not meant to be suppressed. Go carefully and gently. Love to you all.
The immediate family will have a private gathering.
The date for a larger gathering, that will be a celebration of Dean’s life, is listed below.
