Dean Sims decorates his Agassiz Ave home every year for “Christmas Spirit.” After the recent loss of his 17-year-old dog Madonna, Sims writes on Facebook: I have a bad anxiety disorder that stops me from a lot of things like full time work… I love helping people and just making people smile cause life sometimes causes problems…Life is a very precious so don’t take advantage of it. Just live to your best of your ability.”
