To the Schneider Family,
Effie I am so happy I could know your son Dennis and to share him with you as my son-in-law. I loved Dennis and we shared many special moments together. I loved the Schneider family get-togethers on the family homestead out in country; what a great time we had seeing everyone and enjoying the company with one another. What a blessing God has given your family. I am so glad Jack and I and Laura could share these wonderful times. I feel in my heart that Dennis is with the Lord. He just loved life and his animals and the desert, God's land, and of course his family and friends. He touched my life in a special way and I will always remember him and love him and I will see him again someday in God's heavenly place.
