    .Ann, Lois, Lori, Kenny, Gary and Paul. My heart aches with you and the pain hurts me just as much as it hurts you. I can’t believe Dennis is really gone. I wish this whole thing is just a dream and I would wake up and Dennis would be here and he would be fine, but that wont be happening. I think about him everyday, I cry about him everyday.
    I’m so sorry you lost a son and a brother, I’m just lost for words.

    My Deepest Condolences to the Hektner Family. 🙁
