    I was so shocked to hear of Dennis’s unexpected death. He was such a nice man. He was a wonderful POA president. He is the main reason our neighborhood continues to look good for so many years. He was so good about making sure everyone was obeying the covenants. I will certainly miss him. He was good about listening to my ideas and suggestions. Please know that the neighborhood misses Dennis. My prayers are with your family.
