A few weeks ago I was digging through some old boxes in the basement looking for something, don’t remember now what it was.  I came across a stack of old slides, including this one, from a Grand Bend camping trip.  I’m pretty sure this was 1976.  I thought it would be worth posting it here, for two reasons:  First – look at all that hair.  Second: I had forgotten that Dennis Horn was with us.  Dennis passed away earlier this year, and it seems worth remembering that he was part of our lives way back in those summers.

HORN, Dennis W. Of Elora, passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Hamilton on Thursday, June 10, 2010, in his 54th year.
