    Dennis, I remember you from better days at the old YMCA on Huntington Avenue. You were a great runner and cyclist and a good man. You are finally free to ride like you once did…-Paul Mendis

Dennis was a great person and I had some good laughs with him. i would wave to him when I saw him running and he would wave back. This has been a long journey both for all of you and for him.
