Dennis was a great coworker and friend. It was fun working with Dennis at stockman. He always had some story to tell me or wisdom. He love his farming and his kids, wife. He would be greatly miss. I always will remember him. Take care of yourself and Dennis will be watching over you.
What a great tribute. The hardest part of working so far away is you can't get to those you care about at some of the most difficult times. Please know that someone in Oklahoma has you in her prayers, especially today as you say goodbye. He is no longer held captive by that horrible disease and is up there having a "discussion" with Dale, Darrell, and Roger to be followed by a beer and some cards! God bless and find solace in knowing he is at peace. You are all in my prayers today and always.
My condolences. I wish you, Dennis' family, the best. He was a fine fellow!
