Dear Deloris and family,
When I think of Dennis I go 48 years meeting Dennis,Brad, Danny Peak, and Kenneth Lipscomb on a Sat. afternnon.Who would know then that Danny and I would get married and Dennis would preach Dannys' funeral. What would I have done without Dennis in 1974? Rose, Brad and his wife, Breanda and her husband helped me make choices. When I asked Dennis,"Will you preach Dannys' funeral". He said, "Yes, I will". I have always been so grateful to Dennis and he preached that Danny was his brother ( we know he was a foster child) but that didn't matter to The Peak Family. I will always remember Dennis' eyes they lit up when he laughed and he had a funny side to him. It has been my pleasure to have known Dennis.
"I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn't like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid." John 14:27
