    Cheryl I’m so glad I got to spend the time with Den the last few years. Like going to Canada a couple of times bear hunting , fishing and junk storing. Talking about all the good times as kids . Our child hood was in the best of times for sure we both thought. And if we did those things today we would be in jail for sure. I have all those memories and you have heard some and some you haven’t . He will be missed by many and he has made a big impact on many lives in his time hear on earth. God Bless

    Cheryl we are so sorry to hear of Denny’s passing. Please extend our sympathies to the rest of the family also; as I don’t think that it would be wise for me to come tonight or to the funeral, as I have been fighting Bronchitis for the past few days. Please know that you are in our thoughts & prayers; and that I would be there for you, if I could.. God bless you all, as you go through this difficult time. Love& Prayers,

    Sad to hear about the passing of your brother, father, and grandfather. I have know Denny since high-school…Enjoyed the Sunday Corvette caravan that took place on Sunday’s in 1965. Sometime their would be 15 Corvette’s leave Greenville for a summer cruise. As we grew older, we were happy for a classic cruise and set in a old lawn chair and talk about the “Good Old Day’s”. I Denny knew a lot of people; I wanted to stop last night, but the line was out the door! I had a new knee last month, and I am having alittle trouble standing for any length of time.( Denny we’ll miss you this summer with that great smile and that special laugh!) I’m sure you’ll be cruisin this summer in haven, and you won’t have to worry about rain! God Bless

    Cheryl; Sorry for your lost, I never had time to get to know you, but Denny always had great comments about you when we were together. To have someone you love with you when you cross to the other side cannot be any better than that. Great guy, he’ll be missed!!
