Denis, & All Denis's immediate family, & friends have been in my thoughts, these past several difficult months. Most especially, his children.. Matthew, & Erin, his grandchildren, & his close, & dear brother, Sean. My heart goes out to you all..It would be an effort in futility to attempt to come up with words to ease the pain of the loss that your all feeling, of your remarkable, & incredibly special Dad, & brother..That's not possible..There are none. But yet, The positive, kind, & compassionate impact he had on people truly speaks volumes, & for itself. I'd like you all to know that his messages, & conversations with me the past couple of years (the most difficult in my life.ever)
I consider "true treasures & always will". Your Dad was not just my cousin..He was a True Gem.
- Much Love to you all,
May God hold you close in your grieving
Cousin, Mary Ellen xxxooo

I knew Denis when he would stop by Janet's (I'm her tenant downstairs) and we'd chat for a while. I remember most his soft-spoken kindness, warm smile, and how much he loved visiting with his grandkids. Erin and Matt, my heart goes out to you for your tremendous loss of a good man. Love, Scott
