Dear Family, we are so sorry for your loss. Denzil was a good man and we so enjoyed visiting with him. He was pleasant to talk to and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to him and Kenneth Ballou when he was visiting Kenneth on his birthday in June. On one of our visits to his home, he shared the scrapbook his children had made of his WWII service. He seemed very proud to have it and was thankful you took the time to construct it for him. We are proud and honored to have had the privilege to know him. ‘Happy”and “MisHap” Spears

So very sorry, Larry. I just got my Cumberland Co News and saw of the passing of your father. I pray God gives you comfort during this time of grieving; we grieve for ourselves as he is now in a much better place. He has a new and perfect body with no fear of ever being sick again. May God bless you and your family.
