Denny and I have worked together some years ago. I remember hiring a young kid in his early 20's. Denny and I was talking with this young man and he had mentioned who his father was and said to Denny that he hoped that it wouldn't hurt his chance of long term employment..Denny looked at this young man and said" Well you know... you can pick your Nose and you can pick your Friends but you cant pick your family" Dont worry about it Denny said.. We wont hold that against you.....That was to damn funny at the time, Something i will always remember....RIP Denny

I remember going to church with him . He cut my older sister hair one day in Sunday school . My mom and I still talk about that every once in awhile . I ran in to him at my new house 3 years ago . He was working on it . We started talking and it was like the old days . Even though it had been years since we last talked . Always was smiling and grinning! Go rest high my friend

I remember meeting your dad at your wedding. Even though I had just met him, it was obvious that he was very proud of you. Times like this are when friends and family are so important. You and Candice have my deepest condolences along with my thoughts and prayers.

I grew up with Dennis in the Heights and went to school with him. We made the best out of school by goofing off and it still makes me laugh thinking about the stuff that we did back then. I remember your constant smile and the miles that we walked and road our bikes! May God be with you on your journey and God bless your family!
