I was deeply saddened to hear that Dennis passed away. Pat and I offer our love and prayers for you Barbara and the Foley family. We have fond memories of family functions in Brooklyn around the holidays with Aunt Edie, Uncle Vincent, Dennis, Gregory, Nana, Uncle Tommy and others. Those were great times and beautiful memories.
We are presently out of town and will not return until next week. On Saturday April 14, 2018 we will attend a local church and offer mass and communion in memory of Dennis.
