Uncle Den,
I think of you often and still miss the fun times I had with you. From letting me ride in your boat while you drove down the road, to letting me and Steve play on the banks of the creek while you and daddy planted the crops, you were always my most fun uncle. I'm sorry you didn't get to meet your grandchildren or watch your own children grow up, but I'm so very proud to call you my uncle. You are my hero.
Love,
Natalie
