Soo soo sorry to hear about Deanna. I will always remember her beautiful smile and how she always made us laugh when she worked with us in the North Haven H. Pearce real estate office. Prayers for Deanna and her family.
Our hearts and prayers go out to all of Deanna’s family in this time of sorrow. I am grateful for the time that I was able to meet and work with Deanna years ago and quickly realized what an amazing person she was. Deanna was very helpful to me, and in working several deals with her, I cannot recall anytime she did not have that very contagious smile going. She was loved by many, and will be missed, but I am confident that she is in God’s hands, and who better to spend eternity with! Deanna, until we meet again, rest in Pearce.
