  16. Amie and girls says:

    My heart is broken for you Sandy, Eddie, and Terry. At first I thought it must have been an error. No Way! The girls were silent when I told them the news..”.no more laughs and jokes” Danne questioned. Dennis was such a wonderful man, a man on fire for the Lord! What a wonderful time he is having right now in Heaven..I bet his is asking alot of questions! I will always recall his laughs and how I thought he was such a wonderful grandfather to Campbell and Elaine, they they been blessed to be so close! If even for a moment in time, that doesnt happen to often in the times in which we live. Ms Mary Elizabeth…. there are no words, for I know you will miss him dearly. Rest assured we know where Dennis is waiitng ….. and he is with all his loved ones gone before!

  21. Larry & Rebecca Murphy says:

    Sandy, Eddie, Terri and families. All of the Murphys are thinking of all of you today as you face this great loss in your family. We all thought so much of Dennis — one of the greatest memories was Dennis, Donnie and Larry coaching Little League all those many years and the great times we had down at the “Park”. I am so thankful I was able to talk with Dennis at length recently and visit with Sandy and Dennis at Campbell and Griffin’s football games this fall. We had a really good time visiting and watching the game.

    Please call any of us any time that you need a friend. We will never forget Dennis!!!

  22. Desi Smith says:

    Terri and Family
    There are no human words to fill the lost of your love one. All we can do a pray your strength that only comes from the Lord. Remember John 5:25 the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear shall live. This is the promise of God (the resurrection) hold on to it, look forward to it. Trust God to be your comforter in such a time as this. God Bless you, Terri I love you.

  23. Anna & David Redditt says:

    We didn’t know Mr. Ross but we are friends of Terri and Jeff. Terri is such a wonderful, giving, and sweet person with such a positive light and spirit ALWAYS. I am sure he is partially to thank for the person she is today…it sounds like he had all of those same qualities. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Terri as well as Jeff and the rest of your family during this sad and difficult time. Please know we’re here for you.
