Dear Jeanette and Family,

Tony and I are so sad to hear of Dennis's passing. We always enjoyed visiting with him at the various functions we attended in Port Alberni. He was so thoughtful to always ask about my parents, John and Vilda MacNeil, even though they left Port Alberni in 1972.

Dennis was kind, gentle and caring. May you all find peace in the wonderful, happy memories and know that he was well-liked and respected by all who knew him.

With kind thoughts of you, Jeanette, and your family, we offer our deepest condolences.

Tony and Sharon Ackerman

My sincerest condolences to Jeannette, family, friends, acquaintances of Dennis.

Will and I only had the experience of knowing Dennis & Jeannette as a couple in the last few years.

I did not know until this evening. I will miss knowing he is still on this plane of existence.

With much love comes much grief. Dennis was loved. You are thought of in kind ways, Jeannette .
