Dear Susan,
Mom and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to you. We are very sad to hear that your Dennis has passed away, yet very thankful to know that you will be with soulmate once again. I never knew Dennis, but I DO know you, and have always loved my beautiful, kind and generous cousin. Bill and I are currently serving a mission in Hanoi, Vietnam, and Mom is still doing well in Gilbert, Arizona. Across the miles, I want you to know that I love you, pray for you, and hope that you feel the comfort that only the Holy Ghost can bring. I love you. We love you.

Dennis blessed the lives of many people with whom he came in contact. He had a wonderful "can do" attitude. His wonderful smile and sense of humor were delightful to me. He will be missed. He loved the Lord whom he served and He loved his family and friends. We will miss him.
To his family I express my sincere condolences for your loss.

Of course we from Western High School all remember him as a great athlete and leader--all around great guy we were glad represented Western High School. I'm glad he also had a good life it appears. This actually looks like his high school picture--it's a great one because it shows his confidence and strength. He'll always be in my memory as a good guy and become a family man. Dennis was hard to see in the obituaries. Mary Boyer

Susan so sorry to hear about your loss. I'm flooded with memories as Dennis was Freya's first boyfriend. I was thrilled when I saw that the two of you married. He was a very lucky man. The joy you will have remembering the good times will give you so much comfort.

The loss of a loved one that was cared for by many is difficult to cope and understand. Dennis seems to have had such a supportive and loving family. May you all find comfort in God's word.
