  • I am concerned about Dino and his Tenant M.

  • Marilyn is safe. Do not know the whereabouts of Dino. Prayer going out to everyone involved.

    • This Is Kirk, Dean’s Nephew.

      I’ve talked to him for years on the phone.

      I talked to him after his dementia episode when he just drove up this way to Oregon.

      I didn’t understand what went on at first, but now I do.

      He shouldn’t have been left alone after that.

      I asked my friends Jim and Merricarol Martens, that have friends and family in the area to check on him back when he had his vehicle stuck in the snow for a few days and didn’t have much food.

      If anyone wants to talk to me, feel free.

  • I am Marilyn, Delano’s tenant. This was very reminiscent of when I was evacuated for the Dixie Fire, not knowing what I would come back to. The house I rent from Deano is safe. I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation to the police and firefighters who were there in a few moments. I especially want to thank God and the people who prayed for me from my church, First Church of Christ, Scientist in Sunnyvale, and other people here in Quincy. Thank you so much.

    • Hi Marilyn could you give me a call please I’m Deans nephew. (925)408-7702

  • Thank you for called, Donnie. It was good talking to you.
