As you know, my dear husband lost his battle with ILD, passing away peacefully on the early morning hours of Dec 5, 2023 in Naples Hospital. I was by his bedside.
Firstly, I want to say thank you to the many friends and fans who already donated—it’s greatly appreciated and has helped ease our financial burden during these past several months. I’m now asking for support to pay down Dennys final medical expenses and funeral/burial costs.
Denny will be laid to rest privately in Naples, Florida, as per his final wishes—to be “under the palm trees.”
I want to thank you all for your love and support throughout this terrible time, it helps to read the many messages of love for Denny from all of you❤️
Hello, this is Elizabeth Hines, Denny’s wife, asking for a helping hand on Denny’s behalf.
As you may know, Denny has been going through health issues these past several months, which recently turned critical.
For the past two months, he’s been in and out of the hospital concerning an illness in his lungs that developed after his short bout with COVID last year. He’s had multiple tests, X-rays and scans that are ongoing, along with three surgeries, most recently for a collapsed lung, which includes an inserted chest tube that is temporarily needed until his lung heals.
He recently contracted a bacterial infection in his blood, which he is still battling, but seems to be under control.
The doctors have explained once he’s medically well, he will need several weeks of physical and occupational rehabilitation. Denny does not have medical insurance. The hospital has been working with us regarding this problem, but a rehabilitation center, along with the multiple lab work and specialists, will not. Denny is unable to fly due to his medical condition, as well as he needs to avoid long distance drives. He has to remain here in Naples to recover.
I’m asking for financial help to get Denny the medical care and recovery time he requires. It’s important he concentrates on healing during this time. Our goal is to have Gypsy Den home in time for his birthday, October 29. He wants to be able to play his guitar again, presently, he’s too weak.
I want to thank you all in advance for your continued love, prayers, encouragement and support during this difficult time. ❤️
