      • Hello Judy, I am so sad to hear of Dennis’s death. I just happened to be thinking about him and tried googling him and learned of his passing. We had the best times as friends during high school. He actually is the one responsible for me meeting my wife! Dennis said let’s stop by a girl’s house one summer day when we were riding around and out walked Linda who has been the love of my life for almost 44 years, 49 if you count years before marriage. I would love to call and touch base someday if you are willing. Not sure this will reach you any longer.

        Take care, Tim Storm

  2. Dennis you will be missed terribly. I was honored to grow up with you as my cousin. I always wanted an older brother and that’s how I thought of you. Everyone thought we were since we looked alike with the freckles and dark hair. I just wish I had gotten to see you more recently and visited as adults. Sorry I missed you.
    My thoughts and prayers are with everyone as Friday rolls around and many will join to celebrate your life that had such an impact on so many. Enjoy heaven and we will see you one day soon, say hey to everyone for us. Love you, Toni

  3. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Dennis was my friend. I remember his big heart and generosity and always thinking about other people.
    May God’s grace be with his family during their loss.

    The Washmon bunch in Houston was sad to her about Dennis. He’s my second cousin on my Dad’s side. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family as we were unable to attend. Sweet thoughts… he’s walking hand in hand with Elaine, his Mom, his grandparents and Aunt Nay, all of whom were so special in his life. Just remember Dennis is “not lost”…you know where he is…..he’s in Heaven and u will see him again one day. Prayers are with you as you go though the coming days….Kathy Washmon Niemeyer and family in Houston, Texas.

    • Judy Anderson

      Thanks Kathy for the sweet words. We’ll all miss Dennis but you’re right, we know where he is and we’ll be together one day. Give our love to all the Washmons! Judy
