Our Daughter's Family

FOLLOWING TODAYS IMAGE, THERE WILL BE TWO MORE FAMILY IMAGES IN THE NEXT 2 DAYS - THANK YOU FOR VIEWING MY TRIBUTE TO MY FAMILY

This is our wonderful daughter Amy with her husband Steve and boys, from left to right, Justin, 14; Ryan 6; and Tyler, 11. When Amy was just a little girl and I was back from Vietnam, in college on the GI Bill, she would ride on the back of my bicycle while I rode to the campus. She would be with me in classes during the days while Barbara worked very hard in a local hospital. Those were days when our family was just beginning. One of my most precious memories is turning around on my bike to look back at the sweet, beautiful little girl with the cute smile on her face as the wind brushed her hair. Of course, as a dad, Amy was and is my little girl, but now, more than that, she is a wonderful mother, a fantastic schoolteacher and a friend to all who know her. She loves to help people and she really loves having fun with friends and family. Barbara and I are so very proud of this wonderful young woman who has done so much for us and for all who know her. As we grow older we know that Amy will always be there for us. We love you Amy !

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
