Monico, many years ago!
Dennis' book freed my mind, I've a lot to thank him for. He helped me, the non-scholar, to better understand the biblical doubt that was always in my mind. I'll always treasure his book.

Dennis was a great man who labored selflessly for the betterment of humanity. He had a powerful intellect, and I learned much from him. And I always enjoyed talking with him as a friend. He is irreplaceable and greatly missed.

With Klo's passing all progressive people in the world lost a sincere, educated comrade who dedicated his life to the dissemination of the historical truth about Marxism-Leninism and Joseph Stalin.

There are not many people who dedicate their time and sincere effort to preserving truth in history and bringing that truth out so that people can learn and understand. We have lost a precious person who generously did this. My condolences to his family and friends. I hope his noble efforts will inspire others to continue his great work. I think he would love that.

Klo wrote with passion and knowledge to dispel ignorance and spread the truth.
He wrote extensively about Stalin and about Marxism-Leninism.

Concerning M-L he wrote a whole book, "The Relevance of Marxism." It is still online here:

He has some Youtube and other videos, still available online, on Marxism.

He also wrote several volumes demonstrating that the Bible is _not_ a worthwhile source of information: "Biblical errancy : a reference guide" (2000) and "The encyclopedia of biblical errancy" (1995).

He participated vigorously in the Stalinist list and was very helpful to me and others.

Klo contributed to human progress. We all miss him.

Though I never met Dennis personally, we did correspond on a number of political and historical issues. I believe he was a fine man and courageous historian. I was saddened to hear of his death and know the loss that is felt by his comrades. Rest in Peace, brother.

McKinsey family,

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. I remember that time Layne was talking about in her letter to her dad about the baseball game we really did under estimate him, just because he was old in our eyes he sure did prove that he could still put us in shame. I also remember the times we would be sitting out front of our friends house or just driving around he would always be walking around the neighbor hood checking things out (thats what we would say) or in other words checking on Layne. Dennis in some ways seemed like a father to some and a friend to others. I wish we could turn back time to where we were still in school so we (as Laynes friends) could know more to a point about his history and we could also play more sports with him. I can tell you this i would be on his team we would always win :)Thank you for the memories that will be remembered and so will Dennis. Once again I am very sorry to about your loss. We Love You Layne always
