  1. I am so sorry to hear of the death of Dennis. There was not any contact with him for so many years but he was thought of many times. Most of the family did not even know where he was living. He will always remain in my daily prayers along with his family.

  2. I’m thankful for the bond you had with my Aunt Julie. And I enjoyed our conversations over the years.

    Denny was able to open Julie’s heart up to God again. And I’m forever grateful for this.

    We love you Bud. Rest peacefully.
