I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Dennis.   I remember the good times so long ago.   I only wish we had connected again, before a time like this.  barb niederriter klein

It is with sadness that I learn of my best friend of many years and with relief that he is free of his pain and disease. He was my championship tennis doubles partner in 1977 and over many years. He was in my wedding and I in his. We went to Cathedral Prep in Erie together and played countless games of pinochle and tennis. He has been missed these many years and I look forward to seeing him again  in eternity. Rest in Peace dear friend until we meet again. My deepest sympathies to Joyce and their children. You are in our prayers.
Joe & Dianne Yochim
