Wendy, I feel so sorry for your loss. Dennis was like a brother to me and a great friend. We lost touch after I moved from Kinston. Words can't express how sad I am to hear that he is gone. The world truly is a sadder place with him gone. He was a great man and a good friend. He will be sorely missed.

Wendy, I am so totally stunned and sad. I just got your voice mail and message about Dennis's passing last Wednesday. I did not see the paper and was gone this weekend. I'll come by your home and visit with you as soon as you will see me. I'm so sorry. He was very dear to me. A good man...and he loved you. Peace and Grace to you and all your family.
