With a heavy heart I send condolences to Mary, Kathy and Jennifer,and of course his step children. Though I haven’t seen my Godfather in a few years, I cherish the memories. Dennis was a true gentleman , I spent many Sundays watching O J and the Bills during 70’s at Rich Stadium. The day started with brunch at the Weiss homestead and would end with a few Pabst Blue Ribbons back at Denny’s, ,4th of July in West Seneca was also a special memory for me as a kid ,, Later on Uncle Denny would show up at my High school basketball games and eventually at the Gus Macker to watch me play when I was in my 30’s. What a guy,,easy going, easy to talk to. They don’t make them like him any more. My apologies for not being available this week, It would have been special to “hear some stories” .
