I was truly saddened when I heard of my old, dear friend's passing. He was a true free spirit. Growing up together, we shared many, many good times-and being the natural, gifted artist that Dennis was, he was a strong influence on my musical education. Our thoughts and prayers are with all who love and will miss him. in memory of him, a chorus from one of his own, original creations.

"My heart is like a wheel-can't you feel? What I'd love to do is roll it to you.
Would you pick it up-call it luck-To have and hold a love so true?"

Rest well, my friend-you will not be forgotten.

I am so sorry to see the passing of this truly kind man. We were facebook friends and chatted up a storm with funny and amusing things. When I needed a hug one day and posted the request, he was right there at the top and referred to me as "sis". Immediately, I burst into tears because I hadn't heard that since my own father passed many years ago. I will truly miss you Dennis but I know you are with your Savior.
