    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Dennis. We just learned of his passing. His parents, Roy and Doris, were our neighbors on Hwy 109 on the way to Cedar Bluffs. We knew Dennis well and enjoyed visiting with him when we would see him at the farm stores or at auctions. It was a pleasure to have known him. May he rest in peace in the arms of God in heaven.
