Dennis, I remember the day you died and we all went to the funeral home to say condoliences to your parents. What do we kids of 50 years ago say to a parent who just lost their 18 year old son. I don't remember, but we have lost 15/16/18 in car crashes and still not easy to talk to a parent when this happens. I only hope that your parents were comforted some way afterward with prayers and God's love. It was awful to lose a classmate so you,just like Gail Sylvester. Not right but it happens. Faye

Dennis I remember the day of your accident like it was yesterday. I am still haunted by the fact I was going to ride with you during the drag race, but the school bus was late. An hour later, we were all in the gym receiving the tragic news. Rest well in the arms of Our Lord my friend. We had some great times in school.
