Susan and family, Leona and I so appreciated Joe's kind and thoughtful attention to us as patients and his friendship.. He has been and will continue to be missed and remembered. These memories and his wonderful family are a strong legacy of a life well lived in serving others.

I join the long list of patients that were fortunate to have 'Dr. Joe' as my doctor. I am a relatively 'new' patient at 12 years yet I feel as strongly about Dr. Denman as those who were patients for decades. I have a bit of a strange eye disease and I feel certain that it was only correctly diagnosed due to his tenacity. Medical skills aside, what comes through in all the tributes was his compassion. I not only was the beneficiary myself but I saw him treat all his patients with respect, compassion and dignity. His legacy lives on in the treatment I continue to receive at his office. My disease is such that I often have to request same-day appointments and I was never turned down. So many times the staff said 'Dr. Joe told us patients with your condition always need to be seen right away'; last week was another such occasion and still the staff invokes his standard of care. I know he would be pleased and proud. And as I have offered my condolences to his colleagues and staff it is clear they are devastated at his loss. It isn't just his patients that thought so much of him. Along the journey of my diagnosis I was referred to many doctors and when they asked who my primary ophthalmologist was, to a person they said he was a good man and a good doctor.
I never met his family but there were times during my office visits that his family came up, and it was so evident how much he loved them and how special they were.
Selfishly I am heartbroken, not for the loss of a caring doctor but for the loss of such an extraordinary person. I know I only saw a small part of him but it was enough to see his true character shining through. I am heartbroken most of all for his family and friends who knew him best; I can't imagine the loss they feel. I only hope that in a small way it helps to know how many lives he touched.

Dr. Joe was the kindest Doctor I ever
met. I was privileged to work for him
25 years plus. My family and I experienced such a blessing from knowing him and his wonderful wife
Susan and daughters Margot and
Meriwether. I am also so thankful
that Dr. Joe was able to do Cataract
Surgery for my husband, Hugh. I will
treasure the special memory I have of
him forever.

I offer my sincerest condolences, on the passing of such a kind, and extraordinary man. I read of the love and admiration of so many people who's lives he has touched.
What a legacy he leaves.
