    We are so sorry for your tremendous loss. Dennis was known in our neck of the woods to be a great gardener, hunter, fisherman and cook. He shared his tomatoes, watermelons and such with us. He would bring them to us on his golf cart. All of us will miss him. He had a lot of answers on how to do things, also. Most of all we are so thankful that he found Jesus and attended church with you. Remember that Jesus is there with you and you will never be alone and when you can not walk, Jesus will carry you. Jesus is faithful and merciful.
