From the Sister of Dennis Berrier
I would like to say thank you to the community of Seymour and everyone that helped my brother financially through his struggle with cancer. Those two words seen so small but they come from the bottom of my heart.
So many people have been asked, so many lies have been told, and many, many people have been hurt. I know what my brother has been through, and I know he has fought this thing hard. Mom & I haven't got to be with Den, we have not been able to give him a hug or tell him we love him, yet you may ask how I know what he has been through. We lost our daddy 13 years ago. For 9 months I watched my father die a little every day because of cancer. So yes, I know. There is a special young lady out there that I need to say something to before I go on. Sweetheart, I was told you tried to get Den to call mom. Thank you for that and its not your fault that he wouldn't, that blame lays on someone else. Dennis loves you now just like he always has. Neil & Nathan, you may never understand why things went so wrong, and you may feel like your dad didn't love you. Your Daddy did love you, and he loves you now. My two boys never really got to know their uncle. There were four special young men that Dennis missed out on and in return I missed out on my nephews. To Judy, our cousin, which was more like a sister to us. Judy, no one can take away the fun times we had together, the three of us, or the love Den has for us. Mom, I know this is tearing you apart, and I am so sorry. I have tried to make things to where you could at least hear Den and tell him you love him, but mom remember, Den has a love for you that no one can touch, Den will be with daddy, and one day we will be all be together again. So you hold on tight, we will make it. To the kid's, Judy & Mom, I have a saying with my kids and maybe it will help you. I tell them when you get lonely, or just need to feel the love I have for you, stand still and be very quiet and if you believe, you will feel me in your heart.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
