"I Can?t Remember A Weekend I Didn?t Have Lunch With My Uncle Denny Or He?d Come Over To My Aunts And Take Me To Get Ice Cream . My Uncle Denny Was My Best Friend And My Biggest Supporter In Life . He?s Inspired Me To Write And Sing Music . I Love Every Memory I Have With Him , Especially Him Singing Pretty Woman To Me Or Karaoke Nights . Watching The Colts Games With Him And Yelling At The Tv While Eating Pizza . I Miss My Uncle Denny More Than Words Can Ever Say Or Describe But I Know He?s Forever With Me . "

"I'm so sorry for your loss of your beloved Uncle Denny. He loved to laugh and was alway so funny. He loved his grandbabies and cousins' children. I have a fond memory of him holding Abi as a baby as he blew a big bubble gum bubble. She was fascinated by that. Many prayers, hugs, and loves to all of the family. He will be missed."

"My Uncle Denny was one of the most special and unique people I have ever known. He was overflowing with life, love, and light. He had a very special gift of making you feel like the most special and important person in his world when you spoke. His pride for his family was beyond measure. I am thankful for our last time together, when we shared a dance at Josh and Katie's wedding. He will be dearly missed here on Earth, but we take comfort in the knowledge that he is rejoicing in Paradise. Our family will continue to pray for his daughters and grandchildren, and all who loved him. Amanda (Jeffries) Varner"
