    To the Parrish family, you have my deepest sympathy for your loss. I hope your memories of happy times with Dean will in time overcome your sorrow. And may the resurrection hope offered by the apostle Paul encourage you:” And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous>” – Acts 24:15.
