So sorry to hear this news about Dennis. I have only been a Hospice volunteer for a short time so I haven't had the pleasure of knowing many of the other volunteers. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this sad time.

Dear Judy and the entire family,

My heart breaks for you all on the sudden loss of dear Dennis. I have so many wonderful memories of our visits to North Carolina and Dennis is in so many of them. I will miss his smile, his sense of humor, hospitality, and willingness to help in any situation (there were a couple involving my cars over the years). Remember all the wonderful times you had together and that you will see each other again someday. A wonderful memory I have is of the many "coffee nights" in the trailer, filled with fun, love and laughter. He will always be your guardian angel. Rest in peace, dear cousin.


With my deep sympathy, love and prayers
Barbara
