Our prayer is that today will not just be a mourning of Dennis leaving this Earth, but also a celebration of his incredible journey and the many lives he impacted. May God bless your family and draw you closer, to HIM and together as a whole. Peace, comfort and love upon you all.

Bailey family...
Wishing God's comfort for you at this time.
So many of us were mentored along life's way by Dennis, be it mechanics or chemistry.
He was the "go to" guy if we needed info. Always helpful, always a friend.
Thank you for sharing him with us.

My heart is so broken over the loss of such a wonderful man. To say he will be missed is an understatement. One of the best memories I have of Mr. D goes way back to when our family went to Gonzalez Baptist Church. Every Sunday morning Mr. D would have a piece of bubble gum for anyone who gave him a hug. Truth be told... I never really liked chewing gum but I loved getting a big hug from Mr. D. I know many people have been touched by Mr. D and are a part of his legacy. On behalf of my husband, Jon Sanders, we want Ms. Judy, Missy, and Wendy to know we are thinking of them as they move forward. We hope you find peace knowing that Mr. D is no longer in pain. He is now watching over you all and waiting to see you again. We love you.

My heart is hurting because you are not here, but I’m rejoicing that you are now in the presence of our Lord and Savior. You are no longer dealing with pain and you are standing tall and straight again. I couldn’t help but think of you as Lee and I were at Disney this week. Every roller coaster ride brought back sweet memories of you and Mrs. Judy and our family trips to Six Flags. You were my first riding buddy and I will always treasure the fun times we had. Thank you for loving me like one of your own and for the impact you have had on my life. Until we meet again. All my love, Whimpy.
