Smiling when I think of you isn't hard at all, you have brought such sunshine into my life!
There isn't too much I can say to you, Dennis, that I haven't been fortunate enough to say to your face.
I have been truly blessed that we have had the opportunity to have so many wonderful (if not fairly wild) visits. We
have laughed and cried together; shared food and drink - although you will insist on drinking "fat" Coke to my "diet" Pepsi!
We have prayed, joked and debated politics together. Compared tattoos and battle scars and agreed that being the parent
of teenage girls is worse than anything else we could think of. You have taught me how to cook catfish and I have explained
to you the procedure for making hot tea.
I have seen you with spiky hair, long hair and a completely shaved head. You have seen me with blonde, brown, short and
midlength hair cuts.
You are always in white, I have turned up in everything from a business suit to a vampire t-shirt.
Somehow, despite the differences between us and your tendency to use the more colourful words in the English language,
we have pulled through together as great friends.
