A Hole in Our Hearts

Posted on

I can’t even imagine how it feels to have this happen. To lose someone you love like this.

One of our best bloggers, someone we knew and liked, for years, is so tragically taken from us.

My favorite picture of Dennis.

Another Columbia pioneer. Whose blog was the second one I read in Howard County. Howchow was the first, and howchow’s blog sent me to Dennis aka wordbones.

We shared quite a bit. A hair stylist. Wayne at Cavallero. An old neighbor, who worked with him on Columbia Festival, Nichole Hickey. We talked at the hocoblogs parties about our small worlds, where we knew many of the same people.

When I was recovering from surgery, I read his entire blog. From 2006 until 2012. I learned so much about this county. Dennis really loved it here. He came here in 1968. Me in 1975. We talked the last time I saw him, about the Columbia Game. The monopoly like game from 30 years ago.

Dennis loved everything about his two cities. We will miss him greatly.

Rest in peace, friend and inspiration.
