    Man Denny, I was saddened and I am still in disbelief with the news of your passing. Death is such a hard thing to understand. One minute you’re talking with a person and the next that person may have taken on a new role in gods plan to never be seen in the physical world again. It’s such a hard concept to grasp, for me, and a sad unbelievably heart breaking one.
    To you, you were such a good person. That dry sense of humor was adored and will be cherished forever by those who witnessed it. You will be missed and never forgotten by those who mattered most to you. You rest easy and make sure to keep that awesome sense of humor in your souls journey to a much better place.

    Much love, Mr. Denny

    Denny my childhood best friend. I will always remember our time on Paris Street, riding our bikes and building forts along Plaster Creek. You were such a good friend and I enjoyed our many adventures.
    I lost touch in high school but from these comments it’s obvious that you touched the lives of many people in positive ways.
    God speed my friend. Your friend forever.
