I don't even know where to start, 21 yrs ago you came into my life and swept me off my feet. All the all night long phone calls and playing slots. I came across country to be here and it has been a roller coaster of 2 decades. You love my sons like they were your own and never faltered in that love and positive direction. I love you more than you will ever know. Rest well my sweet rest well. This pic is our 20th anniversary in Feb and a wedding cake was made for us.

Dennis and Sue took me in. They where a second mom and dad to me. I lived with them for around 1.5 years. In that time I was helped to get my self worth back, a job, and my feet back on the ground. They where a blessing in a dark time. I'm proud to be one of their many kids. If not for them, and their kindness/ big hearts. I would not have accomplished what I have today. It was a honor knowing Dennis. Even tho he would always kick my butt in donating plasma. They provided me skills, and a open ear when it was needed. With what I learned from them I could not have owned, and ran a preschool program. I miss those days going for a smoke, and playing a round in cribbage or other games.

Sue and all of your family and loved ones, you have my deepest condolences on the loss of Dennis. You only ever spoke of him in the kindest terms and he must have been a remarkable, wonderful man. Certainly his loss will echo for many years and those who were blessed to have had him touch their lives will always remember him fondly.
