Hello Debra and Family of Dennis Jones, You have my sincere sympathy regarding the passing of Dennis. Debra, I met you and Dennis when he had a stroke and was hospitalized in Owatonna. I was the speech therapist who saw Dennis in regards to his eating and swallowing. I so enjoyed meeting you. I remember that Dennis had such a wonderful sense of humor. I told him that his laughter reminded me of my uncle, who also loved to laugh. I have thought of both of you often during these past few years. I hope you are well. Please take care of yourself. With friendship, Anna Homuth
