This short story appeared today on artist/columnist Marshall Ramsey’s website. Wiggins and the Dizzy Dean rest area are mentioned. I took a little personal liberty as webmaster to share this because I believe in many ways, he describes many South Mississippians I have known my entire life.Enjoy River of Stone.
Tag: Dizzy Dean
Fun Fact: Deanash
Deanash Campus of the Mississippi Baptist Children’s Village (MBCV) is the former home in the Bond Community of Dizzy Dean and his wife, Patricia Nash Dean. The Deans moved here following Dizzy’s retirement as a sportscaster in the late 1960s. Bond was the hometown of Patricia Nash Dean. The property was an estate donation to the MBCV. Both Dizzy and Pat Dean are buried in the Bond Cemetery.
