I will never forget you. I was three when you were born and I thought my sis (your mom) was bringing you for me. As we grew, you were my playmate. I did not even know what nephew meant. I loved you then and I love you now. It may not be long before I see you there. Save a few joke for me .

Sandra, You have my sympathy on the loss of your brother. I have known you and your brother since grade school, where we had much fun. I remember our class trip to Washington, D.C. and that we voted to have a class reunion every 5 years. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Dear Uncle Dennis
I'm sorry that I didn't get to see you one more time in the home, and also that I can't make it to say farewell to your bodily remains.You left this world during a most inconvenient time for travel for myself and many others. But thank you so much for your encouragement when few others were offering. And thank you for your inspirations. Where you are now you experienced in a vision years before. I believed in your vision when no one else took it seriously, because it mattered so much with my mission in life.

I was 4 years old when Denis was born, but I was jus auntie, his playmate, and buddy. As we got older but still little kids, I remember those summers on the farm that gives me precious memories. Rest In Peace, my dear nephew, and you can look for me because it wont be long before I will most likely be joining you and the rest of the family.
