    Dear Joe and Family, I remember the first time I met Deany with the family, she just seemed to shine. Her personality was very out going. and I remember her in her wedding dress. I always liked being around her the very few times the family was. My parents always thought she was a good fit for Joe. You were gifted many years to share with Deany that is a blessing in itself. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Love always,

  8. To the Klepik Family,
    I am so Sorry and shocked that Deany has passed on. She was an amazing person that stood out with her beautiful personality. She was always cheerful and very caring towards others. I can still see her smile and hear her laughter. For many years I had the honor of serving Deany at the bank and every time it was like a re-union. I retired last September and hadn’t seen Deany for some time. She is an Angel in Heaven
    looking down on all of you and smiling. Rest in Peace Beautiful Deany.

    My deepest condolences to Alaric, Joe, and family. I was so fortunate to have met Deany a few times over the last eight years here in Toronto. I know what a powerful, talented woman and irrepressible personality she was. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Deany from all the stories I’ve heard. She fiercely loved her family and took pride in all your varied achievements. I wish we had had more time together.
    Love,
    Michael
