    I am Queechie’s niece, Arlene Altman , daughter of James Altman. I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Dewey’s passing. I just learned of it today He was always good to our family and I believe he was a good man. He made my Aunt Queet happy and treated her well. I remember they always drove a truck with a camper and had little dogs.
