Amy, Steve and I had a chance to talk with your dad on our visit to the family farm with 4-H. He told us the story of how he moved the building we were sitting in to its present location. He was so friendly and welcoming to a couple of strangers. He passed those qualities down to your family. We extend our sympathy to you and your family. Love, Bernice

Dennis was a good and decent man, who was always willing to help you if you needed it. He always made time for ya to have a chat, no matter how busy he was. He can be proud of his wonderful family who always made one feel welcome at the farm. He will surely be missed, and I am glad to be able to call him my friend.
