BEAUREGARD, Ala. (AP) ? Picking through the twisted debris that had been her Alabama mobile home, Carol Dean found her wedding dress and a Father?s Day note to her husband reading, ?Daddy, I love you to pieces.? But the storm took the 53-year-old husband and father.
Dean was on the clock Sunday afternoon at Walmart while her husband was home in Beauregard. As forecasters warned stormy weather was heading toward the Alabama-Georgia line, she said, David Wayne Dean sent a text message cautioning a friend to keep up with the weather on the news.
Then the storm hit and David Dean didn?t make it out. His body was found on the other side of an embankment in the neighbor?s yard.
