    My deepest sympathy to his family. I had the pleasure of working with Dennis for 6 months at Manor Care. I enjoyed working with him I always brought him Coca Cola and m&ms. He was one of my many favorites. Every time something went wrong I was the person he talked to to see if I could get thru to people sometimes I could sometimes I couldn’t. We always had a good time together. He called me his Ebony Goddess from there on. Mr Dennis was a great guy to me and he will be missed.

    We are very sorry and we extend our sincere sympathy to your family. We met Dennis at Bickford Cottage when he resided there (along with his cat, Phebe). We had many enjoyable conversations with Dennis and he made us laugh with his funny stories. He will be missed.
