The love of my life my friend and husband of 40 years has been taken home, so now Dennis you are at peace and have no more pain. He was my everything and still will be. Dennis was a smart, proud, hardworking man, a father, PA, Uncle, brother, cousin and friend. He loved helping others and if he didn’t have the answer, he would find it. He was a teacher, hunter, and carpenter; a man that could do anything he put his mind to. His latest passion was training and hunting his squirrel dogs; Socks and all the rest he raised. Most important to him was his family; we always came first. Oh how he loved his two grandsons, Hunter and Quentin. He was proud of his son Luke in so many ways. He was always there for us and wanted to help and just take care of us all. Dennis my heart will always ache for you that will never change. I see you, feel you, you are in my heart and soul, I need you, you’re my life, but God wanted you and I guess from the book of life, it was to be. I don’t like it, but I’m happy you have no more pain. I love you and will never say good-bye, cause you are with me forever.
