I know that you would have liked him to stay longer but God could see his suffering and he is resting now in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May God bless and comfort the family and friends during this difficult time. Thoughts and prayers,Rev. John Higgins.

Thank you Uncle Denzil for all the great childhood memories you gave me. You were that funny-pick on you- make you laugh Uncle! You always took me and Gram to church every Sunday! I know your kids and my mom will miss you but I know you will look out for them even more than you did here on Earth. I know that Grandma and Grandpa are excited to have you home. You probably up there picking on all of them and making everybody laugh again.
I bet you up there planning a big garden like you guys had on Streeter road!!!
You were a good man and I will remember you well.
Love, your Kraut, Michelle
