Donna, I don't know if you remember me or not but I hung around with you years ago at Franklin Monroe basketball games when Rick worked there and I was there watching my nephew Brian Myers play. Your dad's obituary caught my eye in the paper and I remember talking with him often when I would see him around Greenville. I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and your family

So sorry for your sudden loss, Dennis was a regular in the craft room at the Veterans Home and I enjoyed working with him almost every day. He was a good painter, and wonderful, joyous man. I will miss him dearly.

Derry and Traci,
Please extend our deepest condolences to you and your family. We are glad to have met and spent some time with your dad. If it wasn't for Dennis, we would not have had the pleasure of Derry's high school photo that we used on your 30th and 40th birthday!
God Bless and we love you guys!

Donna, Derry and Devin
I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I can remember talking with him at the soccer games, and at school or just around town when we would see each other. You all are in my prayers and thoughts and may you have the peace of understanding that he now has.
