  1. Dennis and Wendy – Saddened to hear of the passing of your brother. I lost my brother 7 years ago of a heart attack as well, he was only 47. The memories I had of my best friend are still with me and now as time as passed they are sweet memories and no longer painful to remember. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
