Dear Betty and family,
Such great memories of your visit to our home in Welland, ON and then in West Kelowna, BC as well as when we visited you in Regina. Denny's name often came up when John reminisced about the Dutch Mill, the Riders, Scott Collegiate and the Dewdney Pool. Rest in peace our friend.

Our sincere condolences to the family of Dennis Junior. We fondly remember our times together with Dennis growing up in north Regina attending Scott Collegiate High School, playing with the Regina Rams, and hanging out at the Dutch Mill. Our last time together was for our 25th Scott Collegiate High School reunion in the early 1980’s where Dennis shared with me some photographs of our early years. These memories are forever etched in our mind of our good friend, Dennis. Sincerely, Mickey and Elaine Donnelly, Parksville, BC.
