Many happy memories of gowing up with Deanna in my life. She always so much fun to be around. She could make a piano walk and talk! She served at my wedding reception. I was there when she told Hack & Jospehine that she & Jim had just got married. She told them at the Ringling Haloween Carnival which was so cool. She was a wonderful cousin.
