Dear Adele and family, This weekend I, very sadly, learned of Dennis' passing while at the RMSC lodge at Mad River. I shall keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Several of us were also fondly remembering Doris, Joe and recalling your loss of Renee. Of course, we all were being thankful for having had the opportunity of friendship with such a fine family and sharing many happy times at RMSC and MRG
