I just heard that Dennis joined the multitudes who have gone before us and are now in the physical presence of Jesus. I have such fond memories of Dennis from our years at Emmanuel before we left and during our time home on furlough from serving as missionaries in what was then Zaire (1970s). Dennis' contagious smile will remain with me always. I pray God's peace and comfort for those of you who will feel the sharp pain of loss until you are again reunited.
