I posted a pic of my son who passed away 2/15/11 on his memory page and was told he was with Dennis Wolf and that he had also passed on. I was always proud of the Cherokee that was passed to my children through my grandfather. I hope that Dennis Wolf is now teaching my child even more and giving him a hug from me. I feel for his family because it has been almost more than we could stand losing Nick.

I don't know you... Just to be nice and let you know! But yes he passed away in February of 1998. He was in a very bad car wreck.

My family visited Cherokee every summer when I was in my early teens and I fell in love with Dennis. He never knew of course, I was shy and would just watch his incredible native dance with awe. My family is part cherokee I was told and I have always felt a connection. I have always felt a bond with the native americans and continue to feel resentment toward the "white man" for their suffering. Native americans seem to have no voice/representation these days in comparison to other nationalities. I believe I have true native blood and am so proud of that fact.

My mother, daughters, and I have gone to Cherokee 1 to 3 times a year for over 45 years. We have made many friends up there including Dennis and the Harold Cooper family that owned/run the old Shady Lane Motel. Dennis and Mr. Cooper have taken the path to the grandfathers above where they watch over all of us who loved and respected them. I never knew that we had native American blood in me and my family until 1986. When I asked my father why he had never told me he said that back in his youth they were not allowed to admit to it because "Indians were considered lower than low and to be one was a disgrace." He grew up in a poor family that could not afford to be shunned or beaten down so it was kept a secret. I don't know how much Cherokee blood we have, but even a thimble full would make my heart happy. It would be an honor to be even a small part of the People. May Dennis' path always be traveled with the love of his family and friends held closely to his heart. My youngest daughter and I both feel that Cherokee is our home. Wish it could be more than a dream, but it will always be in our hearts.
