I'll miss him...

Thursday, April 04, 2013

My loving brother Dennis, passed away yesterday morning. It is believed it was a massive heart attack. @ 3 am his fiancee's daughter found him slumped over his walker as if he were getting out of bed.

He suffered Type 1 diabetes, Renal Kidney failure and congestive Heart Failure. He had been having Kidney Dialysis 3 times a week.

In recent months Dennis was at his ahppiest I ahve seen him in a long time. His daughter was nearby. He got to meet and hold his very new 1 month old Grandson. His first grandchild. The night he passed on he and his fiancee Teresa had finalized their wedding/oneymoon plans. they were to marry one month to the day he passed.

I also purchased my daughter, Ashley's plane tickets to go to Long Beach, California to spend time with her loving Uncle. He was to deposit half of the plane fair in my account. But he left before i made the reservations and bought the tickets.

RIP Dennis, I'll miss you.

    Deb, Having lost my brother, I can imagine how you must feel. I know your heart is heavy and hurting right now, but look how much longer he had than they said he would. And how happy he has been the last few months. Hold tight to the good memories, shed the tears when you need too, and know he is with you. He'll give you little signs that he's still with you. I'm here if you ever want to talk. Hugs and prayers, Joy

    I remember how close to death he was wehn I first met you Deb. He enjoyed these past few years ,albeit with many health challenges, but look at what he got to experience that none of us ever dreamed. Bless his heart, he is now pain and hassle-free and looking down on all of you in love...
love you girl..
