We just learned of Dennis's passing and wanted to send our thoughts and prayers to you and all of the family. We enjoyed having you as neighbors for so many years and miss you dearly. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see you both this past summer. We will never forget Dennis and his humor as well as his strength. May God be with you all.

Patsy, Dennis, so sorry for the loss of your Dad. Fond memories of being neighbors and you and I being high school friends in the 60's. I remember your Dad being a very kind man and later crossing paths when he bought an RV. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

You have my deepest sympathy in your loss. Back in the 1960's I believe one of Dennis's golfing friends was my husband, Buck Cartmill. Lee Cartmill
