Dennis and I met in 1979 as MFT interns in a community clinic. He soon became a loving and loyal friend. I remember sharing a love of music, collaborating on cases, sometimes as co-therapist. Even as family, life, and distance changed our relationship, Dennis never wanted to lose contact with old friends. The annual Easter Rabbit party was his way of showing love and maintaining connections. He will be so very missed. Chris and Brianna, my sincerest condolences.
