To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you find comfort in knowing that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain and death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

Hello Judy & family,

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your husband, father & grandfather. Be sure to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Dennis surely passed too young. Rest In Peace.

I work at Canyon Vista Medical Center in Sierra Vista, AZ, as a chaplain. I had the privilege of visiting with Dennis over a period of many months during his frequent visits to the hospital. It was always a joy to see him (even though it meant that he wasn't doing well and sit down next to him to have one of our customarily lengthy chats. I definitely miss seeing him. He was such a good story teller and truly loved his kids. He also tended to easily find something to complain about. :) But was never afraid to laugh at himself while doing it. I hope and pray that he isn't finding anything to complain about now -- except maybe that his kids aren't up in heaven with him too. He always talked about how he wanted to be with his kids and was sad that couldn't be the case.

Anyway, my prayers are with you all in this continued stage of grief. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. May God's blessings be upon you all.

Grace and peace to you.
