I met Denny a couple years ago and grew to love and respect him as a friend. We have enjoyed many discussions about the Huskers and many other pertinent topics that were of mutual interest. He will be greatly missed by those of us who know him. Our love and prayers go to his family and friends that grieve his loss.

Deb, I am so sorry for your lost. I am the son of Velma (Obermiller) Hughes. I never met Denny as I have lived my whole life in Oregon and have only been to Nebraska twice. The last time I was back there was for Aunt larella's 90th birthday party where I met many cousins. Sorry I did'nt meet you guys. Again sorry for your loss and hope the days ahead get better for you.
