Thoughts and Memories of Dennis Laffick

I first met Dennis when I moved to La Grange Park, IL, in 1957. We attended the same church, St. Michael's Lutheran, and we were in the 6th grade together. I remember he gave me my first serious Valentine. We socialized through youth activities at church. While I was away at college, I heard Dennis had enlisted. When he returned from his tour of duty in Vietnam and I had graduated, I walked the dog past his house and talked to him. We dated briefly. I last saw him at our 25th reunion from Lyons Township High School in October of 1988. I knew that he had no immediate family, as they had all predeceased him. Dennis was a sweet guy and I was very saddened to hear of his death.
