Julia, I am so saddened with passing of Dennis, although we knew it was inevitable, his passing it is still hard. My last visit with Dennis in May was a very good one, where we kidded each other as we often did. I will miss him terribly! My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the entire Schaer family. Your friend forever, Kurt

I'm very sorry about the loss of Denny. I didn't know him personally, but I feel like I got to know him by listening to you talk about all your great times together. Your face was always lit up when you talked about him. I know the many great years you had together will never seem enough. Cherish those memories! Our prayers are with you and your family.
