i remember dean so well. and yes he did spend a lot of time in the north parking lot. i use to park my car in the north parking lot. I am not really sure where i met dean. but i thought he was really nice and sincere. maybe he didnt run with the in crowd etc, but what is more important is how one treats others. dean was not a phony person. he was geniune. he was extremely kind to everyone. just think if i had never parked my car in the north parking lot, i would never known dean as i did..
