My condolences to the family. Minister Finley will be truly missed. I can hear him saying “To God Be the Glory” during church service. I’ll always remember that.

So many stories to share about my dear friend Dennis. Wo worked together at Broad River correctional institution. I will always feel his genuine smile in my heart. Although, we never spoke often over the years, he never missed calling me on my birthday. I always knew he and Alston would be in touch. My heart is very sad and I will always honor this special man.
