"Uncle Denny and Maryann have made a lasting impression on my life. Besides being best friends to my furry girls, you two helped me landscape my backyard. You would not let me compensate you for all the work you two did and I got the most beautiful paradise that I still talk about to this day. Denny designed the whole thing and I so enjoyed the time we spent together getting all the plants.

Another memory is when Denny told me about a man who asked him for money. Denny said he went to pull money out of his pocket and stopped and said, "Buddy, I pick up dog poop for a living. Go get a job." That was the best!

And the best for last, Denny never told me this, but he loved the Japanese pickled onion I kept in the fridge. I noticed the onions were disappearing regularly and living on my own, I couldn't figure out where they were going. So, I kept replacing the jar and they kept disappearing. I knew after awhile it was Denny. Miss him much. Thank you for such wonderful memories!"

"When our dad died when I was only 14 years old, you stepped up and took the role of not only being my big brother, but also my dad.  You helped me through the difficult adolescent years and early adulthood. Our father would be proud of you on how you took over and helped to finish raising his youngest son."

"Denny was the best friend I ever had. I could go on all day just telling the experiencs we shared together ,and the same amount of time on things I can't tell you. Without him I would have never have met Sue and God only knows where my life would have ended up.Whenever you needed anything he was there."

"Dennis was more than a brother-in-law to me. He was an example, role model, guide, and friend. He was my girl's surrogate Deem grandfather, my backup for talking some sense into his brother (Dennis was always a sensible and practical guy!), and a great example of being loving to your spouse. I will miss him and remember him fondly every single day."

"When we were kids, Susan and I slept in one twin bed, and Denny slept in the other. Denny asked us to turn on the light. We found Denny's head stuck between the bars of the headboard of the bed. Sue got on one side, and I got on the other, and we started pulling and he started screaming "My EARS, my EARS!"  after a lot of work, stuffing his ears between the bars, we freed him."
