    So sorry to learn of Dennis' passing. I knew him in high school, he worked at my parents' restaurant in Wellsville (Brunswick Coffee Shop) and he was an usher at my wedding. I have many fond memories of time spent with Dennis.

      Thank you Nancy, I guess that Dennis had his own "demons" to face and deal with. It's just a shame, that he apparently, felt as though, he couldn't turn to his friends and family. He was always a very private person,and didn't share much, even to his family. I could always count on him, when I needed an honest opinion. I loved him and I'm going to miss him.
