  1. Craig and Sandy Jones says:

    So sorry Linda for your loss.
    Denny was the best neighbor we have ever had.
    We always referred to him as the “Mayor of Allenford”.
    Always remember his big smile and helping hand.
    You two were a great couple and great neighbors to us for many years.
