    Earl and I are so sorry for the loss of your Dad. I have missed Dennis from the day he left Florida. He was very special to me. He always watched my house and made sure I was safe when I had repair men here. He would take down their license plate number in case of a problem. Lol Once he called me when my IT guy John was here. He wanted to know who was here. To me he is and will be so dearly missed. I truly loved Dennis. Earl always enjoyed conversations with Dennis as well. Bonnie Burton
