I am totally shocked by this news.  Dennis had kept up with me from the days of early in the century.  His dad lived not that far from me from the Alabama/Florida stateline.  He told me lots about his love of hiking, and mountain climbing.  He had not given me any indications he was sick. 

I noticed I hadn't heard from him, and started to email him to see what he was up to, and then I find this in the process.  Total shock.
