    I am so sorry for your loss. May the family find some comfort like I have in times like this. It is knowing that God will soon end all pain and tears. He also promises that we will see our loved ones again by means of a resurrection here on earth (Revelation 21:4, John 5:28,29). What a wonderful time that will be to welcome back Dennis and many others that we miss dearly! My heart goes out to you. Please accept my condolences at this difficult time.
