Coug,
I was so surprised to hear of Denny's passing. I am so sorry I didn't make it to the wake or the funeral. But I was thinking of you.
Although I didn't know Denny very well, I heard lot's of stories about him.
I believe the most I've ever seen him was the day of your anniversary party. He was so happy that day. As were you.
I just looked at all of the pictures posted. What a handsome man.. I can see why it was love at first sight for you. And those dimples!
Now the rest of your life goes on, but the memories, oh the precious memories you have of your love for one another.
These my friend will go on forever.

In love,
Janet Zorger

I can remember going to Pap & Grams house and being with the whole family every holiday, stuffing my belly with as much as I could from Uncle Denny and Cougar's cooking. I can remember Uncle Denny always looking out for us kids, giving us the best advice and listening to his stories of life. I will forever be his and Cougar's little Harley girl. He taught me to be tough no matter how small I was. He taught me to embrace any lesson I had coming my way and to always be learning something, educate yourself and be driven. He had the best smile and laugh when we'd go to visit him. So many memories and not enough words to express the love and care he had for his family. I wish I could be home for him, for Cougar and Justin...for everyone. Hold Fast. Remember that those who are departed from their physical bonds, are never departed from the hearts they've bonded with. Love you Uncle Denny and family. God rest your soul. <3

Yesterday my husband left his battered and worn body and went on to Heaven.
I can’t imagine my life without him. We’ve shared our life for the past 35 years.
We had great times, and really bad times. I’m choosing to remember the good times.
I’m thankful that his pain and suffering are over, and at peace because I know he was saved, so he is now in heaven.
I’m sad because we’ve lost a husband, a father, a grandpa, a brother, an uncle, and friend.
I’m so thankful for the time I had with Denny. I’m going to miss him with all my being.
He was love at first sight for me.
He taught me to be strong, so I will go on.
Rest easy Denny Lamoreau💕
You will be missed, but never forgotten.

I am forever grateful that Denny came into Kathy and Justin's life. They were helpers for each other. He worked hard and played hard. You can see from the pictures that others have posted that they had many good times together. He will be missed. He is in a better place now. Psalm 86:5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in loving kindness to all who call upon You.
