Ruth, Rachel and Family, Dennis was a fun guy to work with at MCI-he liked to keep things in an orderly fashion. He was always willing to try to pull one over on someone and then look at them like-"well there I got you." He always had a smile on his face when you seen him. He is now smiling more than ever and just being the Dennis we all knew. Our deepest sympathy to all of you. Don & Michelle (Hardy) Murray
