    I helped care for Mr. Dennis for a little while after he had his stroke. He was a very loving, kind, gentle man.. He had a huge heart and a wonderful smile. I loved to listen to him talk about the “old days”. They broke the mold when God made Mr. Dennis he was one of a kind. My prayers go out to his family, friends and all that loved him. May God hold each of you tight during this time. Rest In Peace sweet man, for you will truly be missed.
