Marzy and family, my deepest sympathy for Dennis. He was a sweet man and we got along very well. Liked to kid back and forth and always had a joke or something that we could sit and laugh at the majority of the time.

Sr. Kristin Quicker, OSHJ

I consider, that you are mistaken. I can defend the position. Write to me in PM, we will communicate.
