I love you Uncle Denny so much! I'll never forget being a little girl and you would sit me up on your lap lean down and tell me "you're the little girl I never had" so many times you told me that. I've often thought about that memory but makes me want to cry putting it in words right now. You'll always be remembered and missed by me hugs and kisses until I see you again! Hug and kiss my mama for me🥰
