As I sit here in shock about my colleague passing on to a better life, the first thing I thought was I am going to miss him a lot. I know this sounds funny but Dennis and I had a thing about posting a different avatar every Halloween. Nothing was said between the two of us about it but it, it was something we had and understanding about.

As everyone before me has said Dennis (Doctor9) had a great knowledge about Access and Excell, his patience with members especially new members was an art Dennis had excelled at. Dennis has helped so many people I hope the one thing they learned from him was to share their knowledge with anyone who asks.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Dennis's family and friends. Dennis till we meet again ... frown.gif

Human nature, it is a funny thing and the hardest thing to program to prevent.

Doctor9 will never be forgotten for all of us.

There always will be lot of good things to remember him.

I haven't been on this site for a while since I ended my last contract the end of 2017. I was shocked when I signed in and saw that we lost Doctor9. He has been one of my favorite people to work with here. It just seemed there was no problem he couldn't add some insight into. I will miss him terribly. My best to his family and friends.

Wow. This is a shock. i will surely miss the interactions that I have had with him via multiple forums. He was a great resource, especially as I was getting into VBA and Access programming.

My condolences to his friends and loved ones.

I am terribly sorry to hear of Dennis' passing. I literally was just re-reading an exchange I had with him a while back, and then clicked home and found this post.
He assisted me many times and always looked forward to seeing his response. I am thankful for him sharing his expertise with us all and always in such a kind a gracious manner.

My condolences to his friends and family.

How very sad. I haven't been on the boards in a while only to hear of his passing. He was truly an asset to these forums.

Here is one of my favorite responses from Doctor9 a few years ago. I knew by this that he was a very, very smart individual. notworthy.gif

HOW DID I MISS THIS!!! Doc was one of the first people I met on here and jumped in on so many of my questions. Really liked that guy, he helped me with a few tough ones and he was one of my go to's when I got in a bind. He always made time to help out and was such a genuine person. Was wondering why I hadn't seen post from him in awhile...was hoping he was just on vacation... frown.gif

He is on the greatest stage now, playing in an everlasting performance.
