I knew Dennis through his brother Delmas when we were best friends as teenagers. I loved the Rigsby family like my own, probably better. Although we haven’t been in contact for years I still think of the Rigsby’s quite often with so many fond memories. I was shocked to see the obituary this morning for Dennis. May his memories carry the family during the days and weeks ahead. Take care Ann and Delmas. Peace.

To many memories to list. My best friend. We had a blast growing up. Dennis was like a brother and Roy and Mildred was like second parents.
We loved fast cars, Florida trips, skipping school,(shhhhhh) and just about anything. A wonderful friend.
Matthew 6: 19 & 20, Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and thieves break through and steal.
But lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and thieves do not break in to steal. This verse may be talking of material things, but just think of the treasure, you have waiting on you in heaven. What a reunion it will be. Prayers for all the family at this time. Each and everyone of y'all are in my heart and prayers.
