Dear Vivian and Family,

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm so glad the short time I have been in BV that I got to know you and your precious Dennis. I remember him sweeping the floor at the BV Community Center for the Young at Heart luncheons. We will miss him!

God comfort you and your family in the months to come!

Chuck and Jan Vesely
