Dear Ann and Eric,

We regret we will be unable to attend the funeral because Judy is watching four horses for her barnkeeper, who is away helping her out-of-state daughter with a newborn infant.

Dennis will always be remembered for the great friend that he was when we lived in the Raintree neighborhood together. He had a great sense of humor, a loud and ready laugh, and endless stories about his hilarious exploits as a youth in Canada, in the field, on the job, and with the pets that he loved. He and Ted went fishing occasionally, but it wasn't the fishing that he craved, it was the companionship and the conversation.

Dennis had incredible skill with his creative mind and hands, able to intuitively grasp any challenge and quickly produce a practical and often elegant solution. He was equally adept at boat hull design, engine mechanics and smoked fish recipes! And always willing to help and support.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your extended family in the U.S. and Canada.

Ted and Judy Morand, Tawas City, Michigan
