My 93 year old mom moved in with my sister and gave me the family dining room set. Only problem, she lived in NJ and I live in Michigan. This set contains a lifetime of memories and I didn't want it leaving the family, but I'm a simple minister with a simple salary and couldn't afford to pay too much to get it to Michigan. Dean was the answer to prayer. He agreed to wait until he could piggy back my set with another shipment out in this part of the country. It took him a few weeks, but he was finally able to work a schedule out. then the snow storms hit! Now we were down to the wire. My mom was moving the day after Christmas and Dean was stuck in the New York blizzard! So he made arrangements with my mother's realtor to pick up the furniture as soon as the storm was over and then called my mother to put her mind at ease once he had arrived and safely secured the set. He drove straight through to Michigan with it and delivered it the next day. Each time we talked, I thanked God I had chosen an honorable man who kept in touch with me and who remained diligently dedicated to getting that set out to me in spite of the weather setbacks!
