When we were kids I remember all the good times. Now you are with your brother, mother and father and so many more.
You were the greatest cousin a girl could have!
Will see you, when its mine time.

He would light up Halloween night to give out candy to all of the neighbors and their children. He would stay out there for hours and just smile and laugh with them! Such a warm individual!!

Denis liked John Wayne. He loved his family, his children and grandchildren. He was a good husband to Chie for over 50 years. He will be missed by his family and friends. I am glad to be counted as a friend as he goes to be with God.
