I worked alongside Dennis in his group home through Homes for Independent Living. He was a great guy to be around with his funny one word lines, clapping, singing, and constant need for attention. He was very sweet and liked to say hello to everyone everywhere we went. I had the pleasure of seeing him on a daily basis and enjoyed his laugh. He was a great person to be around and brightened my day. Along with his Elvis music and movies, he enjoyed watching the cooking channel from time to time and had a soft spot for babies. He will be missed by everyone that has met him. I hope he's having a great time with mom up in Heaven and is enjoying all the dancing and doggies he can.
