We will miss you, Denny, and are comforted knowing you are in the presence of Jesus, and will see you again.

Cousin Denny was 15 month my senior and I really looked up to him. As kids I acquired a hunger for sports largely due to his influence.
He was a gifted athlete in his youth. I will be anxious to see him once again I’m a healthy, resurrected body at Christ’s Coming.

Dear Jean & family
Sending prayers for your comfort. I know it’s been a long, difficult road for the last several years. Dennis & Henry & I had many fun times together when we were young. I won’t be able to attend the service but will hold you in my thoughts

We’ll all get together on the other side some day.
See you then.

Hi Brother Dennis,
Had great times together. Always laughing together. Sorry for your suffering… Brother r

I fondly remember David as a kind, quiet person …but happier, enjoying AKL Fraternity events with the “boys” these no past 50yrs. May he rest in peace 🕊️
