    I am devastated to hear of Dennis passing. I only had the pleasure of working for him for a few short years but he was the kindest, gentlest man I have ever known. He taught me things that I will remember all my life. Everyone who knew him always spoke so highly of him. The world is a little dimmer without him here. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
