My deepest condolences to Charles (Crystal), Chris and family. Dea was a wonderful person. I worked with her in Bandera and we have stayed in touch over the years. She was always so thoughtful and compassionate. She loved her boys and her motorcycle. She showered my grandsons with love and attention. Just recently sending them maps with details of rides she had taken. She will be greatly missed by all.
