So sorry to hear about Dennis. I remember you guys at gramma and grandpa Morgans on all the holidays. Monte and mom would bring us to Hillsboro so much fun. We always thought Dennis built the best snow forts. My family often talks about all the fun we always had at the family gatherings. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you. With deepest sympathy Martha Porter Karl Davey Elizabeth Stevie Robbie. Julia passed away a couple years after Monte passed away but always you all are always in our prayers and thoughts.
