It is sad when one of the guys is gone. But Dennis will always be part of us. Dennis may not be with us physically, but he will always be with us in our memories and smile when we think of our times with him. Dennis was mansโ€™ man, a patriot and a friend. Pat and I offer our deepest condolences to Annette and and his family. May God hold Dennis in his hands and lets him find eternal peace ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ.
