There are no words to express who Dennis was to our children and me. Instead, I’ve chosen to share the common thread that everyone who knew him, either personally or professionally, remembered about him. It is, of course, his laughter.
In many ways that laugh personified who Dennis was. His laugh was the most genuine, happy sound I have ever heard. He would laugh so completely that his entire body shook, and when you heard him laugh you couldn’t help but laugh yourself. It just made you feel good. It was a completely honest laugh, just like Dennis, and it came from the bottom of his heart.
It was the laugh of a man who loved and enjoyed life, who was confident and comfortable with who he was and what he had accomplished but yet somehow remained unpretentious. Dennis was a completely grounded person who you could truly count on. He never lost the ability to appreciate the little things in life, which he knew were really the most important things in life. Those qualities enabled him to be successful on every level.
Of course nothing made him laugh more than the antics of his three little girls. Not a day went by that laughter didn’t fill our house and our hearts. These are just some of the many reasons why I fell in love with Dennis and knew he was the man I would marry. Our children completed our family and our happiness. He was a terrific husband and father and I am grateful to have shared in his life. I will miss his friendship, his honesty, his laughter and his love. Today. Tomorrow. Always.
