  2. To The Family,
    My prayers are with you during this time of sorrow. However, I know in my heart that Dennis is in an incredibly awesome place called Heaven. He was a delight to work with for several years at the Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care and brought joy to many of us and to the patients there. He will be missed. I feel so wonderfully blessed that the Lord should have us cross paths on this short journey in life. God bless to all, Doc ‘V’.

  4. Dear Family,
    I am so very sorry for the loss of your Dad. I also lost my dad this year. It is a loss no one can explain. I will be praying for you. I worked with your Dad at Sister’s Of Mercy also and I loved him like a father. He would always call and check on me to see if I was alright, and you don’t know how much that meant to me. He always made people smile where ever he was, and I know he is smiling in heaven today. We will see him again. Take care and may the love of God help you during this time of sorrow.

  5. What a wonderful man Dennis was! He made me laugh all the time and he was one of the sweetest men I have ever known. He cared about everyone around him. I worked with him for a long time at Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care and I got to see daily how kind he was to the patients and the staff. God is always with us and I pray that he will give your family the strength you need to face the loss of such a wonderful man. He will be missed!
