My literary friend

A photo of Dennis Jones, a longtime contributing writer for the Rawlins Times. He passed away on Friday, Aug. 9, at the age of 68.

How do l say farewell to a faithful friend? How do I do it? He was a giant man with a giant heart.

He took in stray dogs, cats, stray kids and broken people. And he cared for them, and let them know. I know because he adopted us, myself and four children, and made us feel loved and valued. He adopted the animals from the pound that no one else wanted and made a special home for them where they healed and flourished.
