My sincerest condolences go out to you and your family, Dave. They’re so lucky to have you during this difficult time. I’m always here if you ever need to get out of the office or talk about anything. As always, take care.

Dennis and I worked together at Prudential for many years and he was just one of these all-around nice guys, so willing to give of his time for others. Although we did not see each other too much after our retirements, whenever I saw him at St. Als or with our mutual friends, Gil and Arleen, it was like we had never been apart and could pick up right where we left off. That is the mark of a true friend, which Dennis was to so very many people and he will be missed greatly. My sympathy to his family as I know the great loss you must feel.

Dear Dave and family, my heart goes out to you at this very difficult time. Dave, although I never met your dad, I know that he must have been a wonderful person because he raised a very kind and thoughtful son. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I’m very sorry to hear of your loss, Barbara. Dennis was a good person and will be missed. I wish I could be there for the funeral, but am glad I was able to see you last weekend while visiting Milwaukee.
