Dedicated to My Late Friend, Dennis Lee Baer.

I will miss Denny and it really hurts to know that we won't  spend our twilight years together.  He was the best housemate  and friend I have ever had.  He died far too soon.
 
Born: December 13th,1949
Died:  April 15th, 2011
 
Denny did very well in school and college and was in the work force as computer tech for a few years.  However, he developed a very serious condition called anxiety disorder and had to go on disability after that in the late 70's.
 
He kept his interests up with computers, political science,
geneology and was involved in making health and doctors'
charges more reasonable for the working poor, seniors, and the disabled on Long Island and federally.  He tracked his family lineage to towns in Switzerland, Austria, and Chechoslovakia.
 
He passed away from renal and prostrate failure at the age
of 61 years, 5 mths, and 15 days.  He was cremated on April 20th, 2011.  I do not know where the ashes were scattered as I was not privy to that particular  piece of  information.   A memorial service was not held  as far as I know.
 
However one of his very best friends, Gail Schnell was kind and caring to us both.  She became a really good friend of mine.  'Thank you for being there for me in my time of bereavement Gail.  Denny would have appreciated the fact that you stayed a friend after he left this earth.'   I know that he is with God.

MISS ME - BUT LET ME GO
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little--but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me--but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone. It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss Me - But Let me Go!

Denny, I am sorry that you did not get any kind of real 'send off'.  It was taken out of my hands.  I dearly hope that you meet your ancestors in heaven.  I pray that all those you have loved and known that have gone before you will be there to welcome you when you arrive.
 
I looked it up on 'bing' Honey.  When the Jewish tradition of putting stones on a loved ones grave started; grave monuments were mounds of stones.  Visitors added stones to "the mound" to show we are never finished building the monument to the deceased.  So in my heart I am putting a stone on your grave today Dear Friend.

Your best friend  -Ruth
