Memories Timeline


  1. Terri and Larry and families, we are very sorry to hear of the death of Paul. We have many fond memories of Paul and Myra. You have our sympathy. Geri and Lloyd

  2. Larry/Terry & families: My deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your dad. I so enjoyed visiting with him any time there was a family gathering. He will certainly be missed.

  3. Lee and I had such fun in Brownsville with Paul and Myra. We attended their 50th wedding anniversary in Iowa. Paul was always helpful and a fun friend. I was so sorry to hear of his passing.

  4. Myra and I are cousins and I communicated with her via email, as we both had an interest in our common ancestry. Although I don’t recall meeting Paul growing up in Alta Vista, I’m sure my dad and mom did (Elgy and Modesta Wegner). Our sympathy and prayers to the entire Denner family.

  5. Terry & Denny,
    The video of your Dad was awesome! He seemed to have lived a very full life. You can be at peace knowing this.
    Thinking of you,
    Cathy & Bill

  6. Our deepest sympathy to all the family. Paul and Myra were a great couple. May you find peace knowing they are togethdr with our Lord.

  7. We are so sorry to hear about Paul. Seems like he lived a full life. We are sure your family has many wonderful memories of him. At times like this the Bible comforts me so much. Jesus said in John 5:28&29 there would come a time when those in the memorial tombs would hear his voice and come out. This would also be at a time when Revelation 21:3&4 says there will be no more tears, pain or death. This would all happen when God’s Kingdom comes, the same kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for in the Lord’s Prayer. What a wonderful prospect for Paul and all those in the memorial tombs now. We express our deepest sympathy. We hope you find comfort in this time of loss.

  8. Three of the Pioneer friends that we’ve made over the years passed recently. We’ll miss them all. Paul was such a pleasant man who loved to visit. We enjoyed his seed deliveries to the farm years ago. Sympathy to his family.
