ADD A MEMORY

Hearing the news of your passing sent me digging through a closet full of memories in search of a photo of you I remember from my 16th year. I was visiting grandma when you came by on your motorcycle to take me for a ride. We even talked Great Aunt Bess into straddling your motorcycle in her red skort for a photo. I remember grandma coaxing you to cut your long hair, not because she wanted you to look presentable, but because she wanted your lovely locks for her doll wigs. And later finding your locks along with several others as I added my just cut ponytail to her collection in the bottom drawer of great grandpa's dresser in her dining room. I was just a kid. And you and Linda were dears. I find myself regretting not having kept in touch, cousin. But am glad to see we will again meet on the far banks river Jordan where you're sitting drawing pictures in the sand. Condolences dear Linda and family. 68 is so young.

I know you are resting in perfect peace, dear brother Dennis. What an example of Jesus love, mercy and forgiveness you were to me and so many others. Your compassion for those in need and your action to help them was a beautiful gift you offered to so many in the name of Jesus our Lord and Savior. I remember when you told me you were working on a tractor at Jan Malik's farm and told me you got off that tractor and knelt in the field and prayed for me! You were a prayer warrior and a special friend to me and to so many others. You possessed a true genuine spirit and I will miss you very much as I'm certain so many others will.

Dennis,
You were the best friend that The King could ever ask for! (You were a close brother to him and Tom Truckner and so many, many more!) Thank you for your dedication to your family, friends and especially so many simple people that you helped by delivering food from the food banks, talking to them when they were desperate and providing the most needed encouragement by "Keeping The Faith"! Your dedication encouraged so many people to rise above it and strive for excellence!

I know that you will be watching over everyone, especially your wonderful family! Your grandchildren especially, will grow to know that they had the most caring and compassionate grandfather, and they will miss having you in their daily lives! You set the best example for them and all of us!

And please continue to watch over "Your King". Like you said, "if it doesn't have a sidewalk, he can't find his way out of the woods!" You provided that sidewalk and path! We are so saddened by loosing you in a very selfish way! We will miss you smile, stories and your seat at the breakfast table! But, we are confident that your journey is on a new path in heaven, where angels like you belong!

God Bless Linda, Denny, Jenny and Family! Our love and prayers to you! Lee Lawler

To my best friend, golfing, hunting buddy, who leaves behind more stories and great memories than I can imagine! Speaking of stories, the time we went hunting in the UP and got lost, I was sick, and we walked and walked on 3,000 acres, and I told Denny, it took them 10 years to find a plane lost in this jungle. Denny just said King, you gotta keep the faith! Well out of no where late that night came lights over a hill and a truck with a guy with a long white beard and his wife, and he said you boys lost, because I never come this way, just had a feeling about it! That's when Denny and I looked at each other and said, "It pays to keep the Faith." Rest in peach my friend, you will be sadly missed for breakfast, and coffee talk and all the other great things we enjoyed, love ya! The King
