    I hate to see so many of our family passing away. Dennis was such a fun guy and loved kids. He’d wrestle with us when we were little and came to visit. I have such fond memories and hate to lose him, but also am thankful he is no longer in bad health. Love you Betty, and love to Uncle Dennis

    Dear friend, I am so sorry you lost your sidekick. He was such a fun a nd goofy man. I cherish the time we all got to spend together. I guess my Raider and Vega will be happy to see their buddy. I love you and wish I could hug you in person.

    So sorry to hear of Dennys passing. I was blessed to know and work with him at Saint Anthony’s. We also bowled together for several years. Praying for Betty and the family.
