I was blessed to work with Joyce for 10 years before she retired. Joyce was and is someone I can talk to about anything and she listens and gives really good advice. There was a couple of times that Joyce took my concerns to Denny for his advice & I knew I could totally trust any type of advice they gave....it was from their hearts & with a lot of thought and wisdom of what the Bible says. I heard so much about Denny that I felt like I knew him even if I only met him a few times.
Joyce my heart is with you and you are in my prayers. I know you had a very special marriage that set a great example to everyone around you. It is comforting to know that Denny was a Christian and is in Heaven with the Lord.

God bless you Joyce I pray you feel His presence and feel comforted .
I will be seeing you very soon.

Although I only knew Dennis thru our working relationship at Hantover, I remember how patient he was, caring and easy to work with. You could come to him with any issue or question and he was always very kind to work with. I was very sad to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the Perkins family and their friends. God Bless you all & Rest In Peace Dennis.

Dennis, where do we begin. You & Joy were our besties for about 46 years. Our younger days of partying then growing into vacations & road trips together or just having coffee @ cookouts together. All this will be missed so much. You were taken from us too soon & too fast. RIP with the Lord, Dennis. “we Love You!” Gary & Nancy Temoshek
