Tributes: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.
