I just found out today that Dene passed away andI am heart broken. She was such a lovely person and she will be missed by all. Every time I visited my Sister karen Egeland we made a point of waveing and saying I love you and I really did love her.She would come in and visit with my Sister and me and we would laugh and have a good visit. She talked about her twin boys with love and I wanted you to know how much she was loved at the CanyonLand Center and how very sorry we are for your loss.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
