Dennis was always so faithful...he was there for DONNA no matter where or when. We did not have to look for Dennis...just look for Donna and you would find Dennis! He wasn't just faithful to Donna, he was faithful to God. We were so blessed to have them on staff at our church in Redlands, CA. They both were a reflection of God's love. Dennis, we will be seeing you in our heavenly home. We loved and appreciated you!!
