    You sat behind me in home room for 12 years. I was between you and Dennis Dare. You were kind,sweet, a good homroom buddy. We didn't run in the same circles. I always wished we could have been closer friends. I have thought of you so many times. For so many years. Worried where you were if you were all right. If your family was ok and mostly if you were happy. I'm proud to have known you and called you my friend. I will one date visit you at your final resting place and put flowers on you grave. I know you were very grave God bless you and keep you.

    Dear SSGT Julian Dean Dedman, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir

    I miss you dearly and so do your two daughters, Tina and Julie. Our prayers always include you and you are in our hearts forever. You were a great husband and a wonderful and caring father. It is so sad that your daughters never got a chance to spend more time with you. We miss you dearly. Love,Diane,Tina and Julie

    Julian "Dean" is my uncle, although he passed from this life long before I was born he will never be forgotten. I will forever tell my family members of how courageous he was, how he fought for his country and passed doing so. I love you Uncle Dean!
