  1. I love you poppy you will forever be loved and missed give my nanny a hug for me. Catherine I hope you find peace and happiness again. Love you. Love always Poppy’s hillbilly. Samantha his granddaughter.

  2. Poppy was an exceptionally kind and loving man. He treated everyone he met liked family. He never complained about life’s misfortunes but simply found a way through them. He didn’t know the meaning of the word Quit. If he didn’t know it, he tried to learn it and was unwilling to believe any task was really impossible. He left this world with his inspiring respect and love for life intact. I am eternally thankful to have known and loved Dean Lund myself but even more grateful for the influence this incredible man had in my husband (Tony) life growing up. He passed on his gifts to love so throughly and fiercely to my husband who has passed it to our children. We will miss you forever, Poppy. Our deepest condolences and thoughts to the vast network of family and friends mourning the lost of this bright light in our lives

  3. Words cannot describe what we are feeling. We give our condolences to the entire family. God rest his soul
    We have nothing, but fond memories of Dean. Dean will be dearly missed.
