    I’m in shock to hear the news. I worked with Denis for about 6 years at UnitedHealth Group. He was a thoroughly gentleman, gracious and always eager to help. His departure reminds me of our true destiny. May God bless his soul and helps his loved-ones to bear the loss.

    My heart goes out to you all. I knew Denny well back in high school. It seems like only yesterday we were riding around Winnebago in that funny old blue car he had, using a coat hanger as an antenae, listening to music and thinking we were pretty cool. Though I have only seen Denny a couple of times since high school, he has always held a special place in my heart.
    With sincere sympathy, Deb
