My deepest condolences to Denny's family. Denny became a friend and brother while we were at TU, and carousing around the campus and gym. Denny was special to me and I have never forgotten his kind and thoughtful gestures.

Please accept my condolences and sympathy for the family of Denny. I pray you will find comfort as time comes. I was saddened to hear of Denny's passing. He hired me at Hallmark Cards and was great to work for. After I started, I had a huge crisis in my life and he was very supportive and had compassion for me. I truly appreciated his kindness in helping me through a rough time in my life. RIP Denny!
