Our Sincere Condolences

We lost one of the funniest persons we ever met. When you were with Dennis there was never a dull moment. Each of the trips Dennis and Joyce took ended up in adventures stories only he could tell. Dennis and Joyce’s love for each other should be an example for young couples. They put each other first, they were best friends, and they liked so many of the same things. They were each others rock. So sorry for your loss. Dennis will be dearly missed.
Bob and Janette Rube

Though they were few, I can’t remember a time I didn’t see you smiling.
Watch over your family as they are hurting deeply by your sudden passing. Send them a sign to let them know you are with them.

I only met Dennis once, but saw all the pictures Joyce posted, and she talked about him a lot. He seemed like a wonderful man, and I know he will be missed forever. It’s  hard to understand why some are taken too early, but know he will be watching  over you, and taking care of you!
