Dearest Pricilla, Since we met some time ago, I have always felt that you were one of the sweetest persons I had ever met. i cannot explain why the lord has chosen to take Denny from you so soon in life but I am positive there must be a greater glory awaiting him with the lord. He is at peace and in a better place. He suffers no longer, it is we who have to bare the burdens of of the loss. Just know that our love goes on for ever, he will never be forgotten by those who shared the joy of knowing him. Precious memories live in our hearts and your heart is now the keeper of those times. No one really dies when he leaves a loved one behined, he lives on forever in your heart and soul.
