Dear Marie,
I was so shocked to learn this afternoon of Dennis' death. We have been away, and missed hearing any news of his illness, so this came as if out of the blue. I remember so well Dennis' playfulness and teasing when Katharine (Santalla) was so very young, and used to spend time at your place. It's been so long since we have seen you. I'm glad, at least, that some of your family live nearby. Condolences to your entire family & hugs, Deborah

Dear Marie,I was so sad to read about Dennis as were Bobbi & Danielle.Dennis always showed his caring about me when I had my accident. He finally got his dream home site but his "dream home" changed. My condolences to all of you.Bobbi left this AM for Florida or we would be there Wednesday. I care deeply about you and how you will carry on as I cared about Dennis. Joyce Carlos

 Marie, We are very sorry to hear about the passing of Dennis. Although we saw each other very rarely, he never missed having a smile on his face.
