    Dear family… our hearts are sad for your loss. May God bless you with you His peace, hope, joy and love. Dena will be missed– I am thankful & blessed to have worked with Dena at TCS when her sweet Elisabeth was in my 2nd grade class. She was such a blessing. We rejoice with you that she’s in heaven and in the presence of Jesus! Our prayers are with you–may God bless you.

  2. I count it a blessing to have known Dena. She encouraged others instead of dwelling on her own problems.
    Her favorite slogan to us was “ BUT GOD “.
    I loved her and will miss her.
    I am praying for the family.

  3. You are such a witness to me as to how to live for Christ. I will always remember the courage and faith you’ve shown throughout your illness. You always said “God has this.” Now you are safe in His arms. Thank you for the encouragement and example you have been to me. Praying for your family.

  4. I counted Dena as a dear friend. Byron, you and Dena were so kind to me during my time in Lubbock. She spoke truth to me when I didn’t want to hear it, she consoled me, prayed for me, cheered for me, supported me in so many ways. I owe so much to you and her. I thank God for her life and look forward to a great hug when I see her again. My prayers are with you and the children. Love and blessings, Lynda Osborn

  5. I’m sorry to hear of your mother’s passing, Margo. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  6. I have always thought of you as family. Byron, you and Dena were there for me during some very rough times years ago. I have not forgotten. I have admired you and Dena’s faith and courage and unwaivering loyalty to Christ. What a witness this family is to what it looks like to live out the Kingdom. Love to all of you, Penny

  7. To a precious Godly woman who has shown courage and bravery through this very difficult time. Dena has been an example for many. I pray for those who are left but I know that Jesus will encourage each one that remains knowing you will see her again. I feel privileged to have called her friend. Blessings and love to the family . So sorry for your loss.

  8. Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints. Dena was certainly one of His Saints. I first met Dena at the Clothing Center out of Trinity Church in the late 90’s after LaJean Williams left the ministry. Dena was a powerful ministry there and reaching out to cloth the needy and to minister to the ones that needed special prayer and salvation. She was a great inspiration to me and to so many others. She lived as powerful testimony and she & Byron & family stood strong and faithful through their journey. May God strengthen and enrich you in His Love & Grace as You have stood so faithful .
