TOMORROW WILL BE MY FINAL FAMILY TRIBUTE IMAGE

I should explain - this photo is 2 years old now! But it has always been one of our favorites. Here you see, in the middle, Justin; on the left is Ryan and Tyler is on the right. They all live in Vermont with their mom, Amy (our daughter) and their dad Steve..
Justin is a freshman in high school and he is an excellent Bass Guitarist and baseball player. He is also playing freshman football. Tyler is a great drummer and plays baseball and football as well. Ryan is our budding photographer and is also a novice chef and above all, he is a "master tourguide" He brings excitement and enthusiasm wherever he goes. He is playing football, baseball and hockey . These guys are the joy of our life and we are so proud of them. Since Barbara and I ar currently Living here in Pennsylvania, we are at least able to make the 6-1/2 hour drive to Vermont frequently enough that we can see special games, graduations, parties etc. Amy and Steve have done such a fabulous job raising these wonderful, talented, and dynamic young men! We love them so very much!

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::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"
; Earth Wind and Fire
