Dennis, Bruce and family - I'm sending you all my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. I haven't seen your Mom in a long time but I remember her fondly of when you lived in Tocsin. I wish I could have made it to the funeral home. Hang on to your memories to help you through this difficult time. God Bless!
