Dear Lucy,

I was saddened to learn of Dennis’ passing - we always had a running joke about the dollars he owed me from losing to me in a golf outing for FTA. He was a gentleman of the finest quality and I very much enjoyed his company when our paths crossed serving our organization.

Sincerest Sympathies and Condolences to you and your family

Dennis was my mentor and supervisor at FTA until he retired, but most of all he was a special friend. He was a wonderful person who had the kindest soul of anyone I know. With so many wonderful memories he will not be forgotten but he will be sorely missed.

Dennis was my cousin and we spent many wonderful childhood times together. We had picnics at Wildwood State Park and Lake Ronkonkoma, and spent hours playing volleyball in his yard or ours. When they still lived in the city, he would spend a week with us in our house in the summer, and Patricia would do the same.

When our family moved to Huntington Long Island, my Uncle Neal said "I think Harry moved out with the Indians". Dennis always remembered that and was slightly afraid the first time he came, in case there were Indians hiding behind the dogwood trees. Nothing can replace your childhood memories because they are so precious, and Dennis will always be a part of me because of them. Dennis, save a Place For Us in Heaven please
