sorry for your los of a family member
mt heart goes out to his family at this time

To Terry and Tony,
We will always remember your Dad as a gentle and kind man who loved helping people. His kindness to your mom in her years of dementia was precious. So often when talking to your mom she would call out, Woodrow, What was that…., Where was that…., Who was that…., and he never grew tired or weary of filling in the blanks for her. Hold on to the precious memories you have of your parents. They loved you dearly and always spoke of you both with much pride and joy. We have a great hope of meeting them again in that Beautiful City.

Sorry for loss of your father. Will miss greeting him at. church. Prayers are with you at this time. Hoping to see you during your time back home.

To the Denny Family
Love and Prayers to all the families. connected to your family at this time. Parting is not easy no matter the age.
God Bless
Victor Cassell and family

Mom, Dad and the Denney family,

Our hearts are broken to hear of Uncle Brad’s passing. It was so nice to have Uncle Brud sharing Christmas Day with us last year when we were home. Uncle Brud I watched you the last two weeks you were here on this earth and our prayers have been answered that you are now healed and in Heaven. Mom, Dad, Terry and Tony, be assured of our thoughts and prayers today and in the days to come.

To the Denney family.
So sorry to hear of “Woodys'” passing. We always enjoyed working with him. He was a smiling light. We also remember the response to “where’s Cow Head?”.

To Ben, Daisy and The Denney family. Sorry to hear of Woodrow’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you guys at this difficult time. God Bless you.

Terry, Tony and Denney family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family as you mourn the loss of Uncle Woodrow. I know he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. Thank God for the hope that we have in Christ, and because of this we look forward to a reunion where there will be no more sad good byes. Unfortunately, we can not there at this time but our hearts are with you all.

To the Denney family sincere condolences. I remember Woody’s quick response one time to a fellow worker who was sorting mail and asked out loud “Where’s Cow Head?” He never batted an eye and responded “Five feet from his arse.”. Just one of many good memories of Woody. Rest in peace my friend.

To the Denney families

When we made a special trip in town so he could meet his granddaughter Deandra for the first time. He was over joyed he gave her a big hug and kiss. We sat and talked with him for awhile.,took a picture one copy she keeps for herself and the other she gave to Woodrow. She still has that picture of him and was glad she met him.

We know that losing a parent is never easy and losing 2 is unimaginable so we pray that God will comfort you in your time of sorrow and remember the good times you had with your father.

Perry, Lesley & Deandra
