    Your entire family is in my thoughts and prayers. Denny has left a void on this earth that simply cannot be filled by anyone. He was both tough and tender. His humor puts him in the laughter hall of fame. His dedication to his people and friends goes way beyond description. I will miss him tons for the remainder of my journey. RIP my dear brother! Thank you for the good times!
