We would like to personally thank everyone who made the fund-raiser for the Dangleis Family possible: from the people who helped to sell tickets to the area businesses who donated prizes and food.

We would also like to thank the Hampden V.F.W and Patrick Farrow who donated his D.J. sevices for the night.

On a personal note we want to thank Debbie Kelder and Billy Howell, Dee Zanetti, Liz and Ricky Hebert, and the entire Beaumier Family, thank you Roger, Mel and Brenton.

Throughout this process we have been moved by many things, from the $1,000 anonymous business donation to the two $500 checks from two of Dean's good friends, to a $5 donation from an elderly woman on a fixed income who wanted to help, but that was all she could afford. And finally, thank you especially to Kim and Bill and the entire Dangleis family for allowing us to do this fund-raiser at such a difficult time.

Dean will live on forever in all of our hearts.

The Cusson Family,

Debbie, Greg, Lauren, Josh and Nick
