Ours hearts break with and for Dennis’s family. The day we met, he made it like we were never strangers. Gentleman, who ALWAYS treated women with old fashioned respect. He was the “HOST WITH THE MOST,” but those words aren’t enough to describe this guy.. We’ll ALWAYS remember him with his fedora slightly tilted, so very cool looking, with a smile and twinkle in his eyes. Now you’re with your parents, angels watching your girls, still holding their hands now and ever. Rest in peace friend, you’ll be missed………
