Uncle Denver was always young. When I was a kid, he was going all the time. He would tell stories about my dad (his brother) and all his other brothers and sisters. How times were hard but then he would laugh and chase us. I loved Uncle Denver. I have great memories of him. He was a great man that loved his family very much. His children and wife were his world. He worked hard. He owned and operated The Smyers Trailer Park. He loved helping people and working on those trailers. It was a headache but he enjoyed it. Hard work is all he knew.
Uncle Denver and Aunt Sally were a team for sure.
He was a believer in and follower of Jesus Christ, his savior. We that believe will see him again one day, soon.
Prayers for the family. It’s hard to say goodbye. The Lord will comfort you. But it will only be a short time till we see him again.
