For those of you that know him. I just found out that our good friend Denny lost his battle with cancer last Oct. He will be missed.  :(

Oh no!  I was just thinking about him the other day.  I'm so surprised that nobody told us. 

RIP Denny.  You will be missed.

Was he a RHS1 member?  What was his username?

Yes Lizzie he was a member. His username was Sheltie. (sp) He was part of the gang that went to the first get together. He's from Texas. We tried not to hold that against him. ;D We'll miss him.

Denney (Sheltie) was the first person on this forum that gave me crap and made me feel at home.  I was always giving him a bad time about being a Texan and of course he gave it right back.  I never got to meet him in person (my loss) but here on the forum he was a great guy and I personally will miss his friendship and charm. 

Sheltie is in my version of heaven where every trip you find something out of this world!  The world is not as bright as it was I found out about his passing but I know wherever he is he has a Shetland Sheepdog with him

I had been thinking about him lately too.  Thank you Dean for letting us know.   Denny was the one who told me about this forum.  He said I'd fit right in when we met the first time for a trip out to Brenda.  I didn't know if it was a compliment or if it meant I was just as crazy as the rest of you.  Turns out it was both.  He and his lovely better half Kylene were both special people and I hope Kylene is doing ok.  I will miss his ribbing all of us and giving him a hard time too.  I am proud to have known him even for a short time.  My life was made better by his presence.  I hope he's up in heaven slabbing away to his heart's content.  May he rest in peace.

Sad news, but the 1st Shirt is pain free now. Kylene, the pain will get less, but after losing my folks I know it will still hurt for ever. Later Clyde
