I am very saddened to hear about Dennis's death. Over the last 25 years, I had gotten to know him and really enjoyed hearing about his incredible story. I was hoping he would write a book about it.When My son was going off to college in Albany, he gave my son his card "in case he ever got thrown in jail and needed help". That was touching, and I'm happy to say my son never had to call him. I will miss Dennis greatly and want to express my deepest sympathy to Barbara, his family and his family of co-workers.
