Dennis you were a wonderful man with a great sense of humor.  I really enjoyed talking to you and hearing about your awesome family including the "grandpuppy".  I knew when we talked I would always get off the phone with a smile on my face.  Unfortunately, this past year,  COVID prevented us from visiting in person, but we always had a wonderful friendship.  I know how much you missed Jeannie and I feeel certain that you are now in heaven with her, and that you both have a big smile on your face!
