    Dear Marge and family, I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with Dennis for 20 plus years in the Meter Shop at the gas company. He was a quiet man and a good friend. I think of him every time I eat a tea biscuit because it reminds me of Dennis. I loved to hear his Wildwood NJ stories.
    God Bless!
