Remembering my Dean….

To: Dean Radcliffe Sweet Dreams, my own Peter Pan. You always sprinkle your happiness magic dust where ever you are. Please visit me in my dreams, I know you will. We will never be parted. You will always be in my heart. And forever in my happy memories. You have brought me so much joy. You are the best investment of my time I ever made. As your mentor I have been rewarded time after time.

Watching your success.

You often give me credit that should really go to your wonderful wife Susan. It was as though she had a special key to turn and you would preform at the best of your ability and often beyond. YOU ARE THE STAR! SUSAN IS YOUR SPOT LIGHT! She has always made you look great! Your Life changed to one with purpose when she came into it. We are all so proud of; “Anchorage’s Mr. Hospitality”. Now you are off to your new adventure. And knowing you as well as I do, there is no doubt in my mind that you will turn it into a fun adventure. I expect lights to go on, my phone to ring and you to visit me in my dreams. I know your spirit will hang around and create mischief and wonder. No way will you simply go quietly. Not my Dean! My Peter Pan will fly! I truly believe your spirit will fly in, around and out of the lives of your loved ones. You let your presence be known. I will watch for the signs. You have so many loved ones waiting for you, Aunt Connie, your Mom and Grandmother, and many other members of your family. My Son David will be there to party with you. And when you get there give my son Merritt a smack up side his head for causing all of us so much grief. Then give him a hug and tell him I always loved him unconditionally as all Mothers do. I pray that Susan’s son and daughter in-law present her with a grand child soon. To help fill her life because your departure will leave her life very vacant for awhile.I know how worried you are about her. But as I told you she has a wonderful circle of loyal friends that will close ranks and support her through the loss.So, rest easy my Darling Boy. Go on to your next life surrounded and enveloped with all the warmth of love of so many people whose life you touched. I love you Dean. Your Mother Mary Mary Kay Smalley

    Good morning MARY, I ENJOYED READING YOUR POST. I can hear the love in your words. I am still waiting to get together. I have been wanting to give you a call but I have a new phone and no longer have your number. Give me a call when you have some time.
