I remember going camping with Uncle Dennis and Aunt Doris. Those were some good times. We always had a big breakfast. They also gave me coffee if I wanted it. That's one memory I'll never forget. Also, I remember the entire Sanders family getting together at Easter at Dennis & Doris's house. Dennis was always super fun to be around. Dennis loved his family. A man of Christ!
You will be missed.

We went to Uncle Casey's sometime every weekend and we all enjoyed playing together down at the spring. When we grew up we sort of drifted apart as I went into the Air Force and was gone five years. I always enjoyed seeing Dennis and the rest of the family.

I was Denni’s pastor for many years at Glennwood Baptist in Morris. He was always an inspiration to be around. I had his first wife’s funeral Doris Brasher. Family you can be proud of the Christian example they lived before you and others. Our prayers are with you as you celebrate Dennis’ life Friday. We loved the whole family as we watched their children grow up at Glennwood.

Uncle Dennis was a pillar of strength in my life from before my earliest memories. I so admired him for his great devotion to and love for my Aunt Darcy! He gave me my one and only spanking of my life. I was about 7 and had been sassing my Aunt Darcy all day while Uncle Dennis was at work. At her wits end, she finally told me that she would have to tell Uncle Dennis when he got home and just as any of their children would have, I got a spanking. One swat, kind but firm with a talking to about respect for Aunt Darcy. It impacted me because they were the kind of people you never wanted to disappoint and I knew I had. I hated that spanking, and I needed many more throughout the years I’m sure! But, it also meant that I was just like any other kiddo in their lives, birthed or not, I was theirs and loved. And now they are together again❤️
