I’m so very sorry for your loss. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
Ruby, My sincere condolences for your loss. Dennie was a popular guy and a great workmate. Since Graham told me about three years ago that he was having a memory problem I have been planning on coming for a visit but like so many things in life I kept putting it off until it was too late. I will always remember his infectious smile and inseparable black dog. May the strength of good times past help you through this difficult period. God bless.
