Uncle Den,
It's been so long!! You were so VERY good to your nieces and nephews. We loved you with all our hearts! Some of my best memories were at Conservation Camp and you made that possible. I am able to share my love of nature and the importance of the environment to my students because of the impact you made on my life. Thank you for your service to God, Country (USMC), and your love for your family. You are in my heart always!
