  • From the entire Dewey family, I send our heartfelt words of comfort and God's blessing. We truly know where you are. It has not been long since we walked where you are walking. We care about you all because of the way God saw to have our paths cross in many ways. Mamma loved all of you so much, and Dayton was the only Grandfather that most of us ever knew. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We are sorry for your pain. Love from all of us to all of you!

  • To all the Brewer family, and especially my mentor, Ken. I just today saw Isabelle's obituary and I want to extent my deepest sympathy to you all. Ken, you and "Izzy" were very special folks to me. I learned from you tremendously. My days at H.K.B. will always be a dear memory.
