    Kathy and family,

    Christine and I were very sorry to hear about Dennis. I hope you and your family are coping okay.

    We really enjoyed the times we talked with Dennis at the market. He was always so full of life. We admired the dedication he had to the market and for standing up for what he felt was right. He will certainly be missed.
