    Mrs. Cherry,

    What a blessing to have worked alongside Dennis at the Court House for several years. We shall see him again soon in the Kingdom! Till then:

    And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)

    Irene, Cindy, and family. We are saddened to learn of your husband and dad’s passing. Dennis came over to greet us and introduce himself to us last Sunday night service. We’re glad we got to meet him. From reading, he’s touched many lives and was a shining example of His love and compassion. You all are in our prayers. May His peace that passes all understanding see you through this, and because He lives you can face tomorrow. ..Don and Carmen Howard

    My heart is heavy for the grief that you must bear, but at the same time, I know that his reward will be great. I feel so fortunate to have known his smiling face and warm presence. He has blessed many more lives that he was ever aware of.

    Pam and family,
    So sorry for your loss. Our home is in Heaven – Jesus said “I go to prepare a place for you…” and someday you’ll see those that have gone before – welcoming you home. May the comfort of the Lord Jesus comfort you during this time of grief in missing your Dad, and Granddad.
