    My deepest Sympathy and love go out to all. I Regret not being there and miss everyone.
    My thoughts and prayers to all, may he rest in peace free from pain. His smile was so infectious along with his gentle nature. Everyone that I knew loved him. One time on my trips down to see Leona I brought my friend Karen and they hit it off just instantly. Once again hard not to with Dennis.

    I had not seen Dennis in a long time, but we knew each other from childhood. I grew up in the same small town, and was around Dennis many times and hung out together some. I am so sorry for the family and I hate to find out he has passed. Dennis was a good guy, and I thought a lot of him
