I know Dennis through years of bike rides,lunches at Bonnies' (he could eat a whole helping of her hot roast beef dinners. I could never figure out where he put it.Most eat a half order.lol),and coffee times at Marks shop.I can't think of a bad thing about him.He will be missed.God help you all through this hard time.Mark Matthes
You know, I have been thinking about Dennis as my classmate...we had the biggest class ot Archer - 21 in Kindergarten and we went all day. I remember Dennis was shorter than the other guys YET when we played "Red Rover Redover" Dennis could easily "break through" our tighly held hands, and when we played "Fox and Goose" (in the snow) Dennis was outr there making our areas to run and the safe area. Dennis was one of my super Archer friends.
A Christian writer Barbara Johnson- once said,, (and I have changed it a bit)
"Laughter is to life like the front forks on the motorcycle and the shock absorbers especially under the seat...it won't take the pot holes out of the road----but sure makes the ride smoother. (I rode motorcycles too- maybe in the Archer water??)
I have refected Dennis could laugh easily and he worked at helping others. No pot holes yet with the right attitude...the ride is smoother. JK
I remember Dennis as one of my Classmates at Archer. He was always very kind,
helpful, and had a smile for everyone. I always felt "WE" at Archer school and area
had something special....every teacher we had "REALLY WANTED" to help we
students in every way possible. I think they must have KNOWN of each of our POTENTIAL in our LIVES. And, our Archer Community has, I felt, very supportive and willing to help out. That quality was in the Henrich Family- I remember your Mother very well, and Ann- you are very special also.
In later years, Dennis "sported" quite a beard- quite classy, and rode a BIG Motorcycle..
I can see Dennis took His cycle to Heaven and is checking it-all out.
May you be blessed and loved.
