My Father's last big event...the Freeland Trump Rally. We had the best time. I took this without his knowledge but it shows the biggest and only smile I ever seen on him. He was a very hard person due to bullying and the ignoring he received throughout the years, but I know the Lord changed him and his heart. I saw him go with the Lord this last Friday October 16 and have the peace now that he is in Heaven.

I am sorry for your loss, Dennis was our neighbor. I never worried about being home alone or leaving for vacation. I always felt he was on the lookout for trouble and made our neighborhood feel safe. He was great at chatting and sharing his stories. He will be missed.
