I'm thinking of you today, Dennis. I enjoyed meeting your parents at Bellevue Bicycle Club events, and I especially enjoyed riding along with you and chatting with Paul and Peg on the way to Lincoln for the art show last year! Please know that you and your family are in my prayers and have my deepest sympathy.

Our memories of our Uncle are rich and many. . .we will miss mostly his sense of humor - and that look in his eyes when he was thinking something funny! We also will continue to think of him every time we eat ice cream - and yes - we have been thinking of him for years - each time we do! We don't know anyone that loved ice cream like he did!
Our love to all of our family in South Dakota - and especially to Aunt Peg and cousins Dennis, Denise, Diane and Dean.

My sympathy to all. I know it is hard losing a parent, no matter how old you are. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Posted by Morgan & Nancy Pyne on May 13, 2008
A very loving man. That's what strikes me mostly as I write this. He seemed always willing to take time with you, no matter who or how old. As a kid he would actually talk to me. This may seem a small thing... it was not. We should all strive to show in our lives the kindness that Paul brought to us all. So sorry for the loss. So wonderfully happy to have had him as an Uncle. We're thinking especially of Paul's family and all our Wermers family today.
All our love to you.
Stephen Morgan & Nancy Pyne
