  1. Happy Birthday Dylan – 70 yrs old – Forever Young

    It is always exciting to find Dylan mentioned in a Dennis Danvers book!

    Dennis you are a busy person! You are amazing and have touched so many people and continue to do so. Your writing is so unique and creative and your students are so fortunate to have you as their teacher. Peace always.

  2. Your story was one of my favorites. The students responded especially to the powerful emotional content. Very nice story indeed.
