    I am so sorry to learn of the loss is Dean. He and I are cousins, a couple of times removed, and friends since childhood. Although I haven’t seen him since his early twenties I recognize that lovely smile in this picture. He was such a handsome, sweet person. My prayers are with all of you at this time.

    Dean was a awesome soul. His smile was contagious and he was a positive influence on everyone he encountered. Heaven has gauned a great man. Godspeed cousin.

    I was lucky to be a cousin of Dean, along with ten others and we were the proud grandchildren of
    T.N. (Newt ) Burge and Mintie Arrow

    I was lucky to be a cousin of Dean along with 10 others and we were all the grandchildren of Thomas Newton (Newt) Burge and Mintie Arrow Baxter Burge of Cave City . The Burge family
    loved family togethers with a long table filled with wonderful food and long afternoons of family
    visiting on the front porch. Cameras were abundant and Dean was always ready to share his
    pretty smile with any of us. He especially favored his two wonderful sisters, Billie Jean and
    Betty Sue. We have lost one so important to us.
