  18. So sorry to heard the news of Dennis’ passing. I was pastor of the Lyndhurst Community Presbyterian Church and enjoyed getting to know Dennis, especially during the spiritual direction journey Dennis embarked on with me. A truly talented and good man. Moved to Santa Fe in December 2011 and had no contact since then. So sorry this is the next news I hear. Blessings to all. Be well. Do something in Dennis’ honor.

  19. Ron – very sorry to hear of Dennis’ passing. I knew Dennis when he lived in Dayton. He was a great conversationalist and we always enjoyed our get-togethers at Jared’s house.

Leave Your Condolence
