Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. I'll miss you when something good happens because you're the one I want to share it with. I'll miss you when something is troubling me because you understood me so well. I'll miss you when I cry because you're the one who could make my tears disappear. I'll miss you when I think of all the wonderful times that we spent together because those were some of the best and most memorable times of my life. I miss you so much...
I'll love you forever babe.

Dennis I miss you. I grew up with you as my dad since age 5. It's still hard for me to believe that you passed. Thank you for showing me how to install the exhaust system on my Mustang. Thanks for helping me repair the broken clutch linkage and when you drove that Mustang home without a clutch, I was so impressed. You didn't even grind one gear! I still tell that story. You're a mechanical genius! You always had such a good sense of humor, made me and Mom laugh so many times. I remember setting off all those fireworks at the pond in Lancaster on July 4th with me you and Anthony. That last one was so loud and so big, we were all stunned! A real live proffesional grade firework. Gosh, you would've thought we were at Lake Whalom! I don't think any of us were expecting that. Anthony's sister said she heard it from Willard St! Man that was so awesome! Going to Hampton Beach and Salisbury. I miss you man! We all love you!
