Dear Donna, Derek, and Devon, We are so sorry for your loss. Dennis was one of the funniest and kindest men that I have ever had the good fortune of meeting. Dennis was an easy going man with lots of love for everyone. I hope you're comforted in knowing he will always be in our memories. JoAnn Jones Kunkle, Mandy Jones and Jason Jones
