I got to know Dennis and Irene at the Vandalia Rec Center. We all had a special
rapport. I was recovering from hip replacement surgery and Irene and Dennis came to see me
at Stone Spring where I was rehabbing. This was a time when we could all laugh. Unfortunately, it came to a too early end. Dennis, I will continue to remember you. Irene, you will remain in my thoughts.
