"Happy Birthday Den! I love wishing you a happy birthday and we always spoke with each other on our birthdays each year on the phone. You left for the Navy when I was 11 yrs. old. We were always so close. It's so hard not having you here in the flesh to talk with. I still speak with you but I miss you dearly. Life isn't the same without you. I still feel like I've got an arm missing. I love you and miss you so much. Your loving sister."
"You are dearly remembered Dennis. We speak about you many times throughout the year and the fact that there is never a bad word to be said of you is a great tribute to the man that you were. I know you must be enjoying your reward now for being that person.
"Den, I just can't believe it's been 6 years today that I said good bye to my big brother. It still breaks my heart. I miss you so much. Mitch came to visit Frank & I for a few days last week and it was awesome spending time with him again. You would be so proud of him. I love and miss you every day! May you be resting in peace now."
"Love you Dad! Miss you so so much"
"Happy Birthday my beloved Dennis. You know you taught me so much about playing baseball. Every time you'd come home on leave from the Navy you would play catch with me. Throw me balls so I'd get better at hitting. You were an awesome big brother. To this day on our front brick wall at our house I have displayed boy & girl statues playing catch with each other. I'll never take them down. They represent you & I and our many hours of playing baseball together. I miss you Den so much. I love you."
"Missing you!! We love you!!"
"Hi Den, I just can't believe it's been 5 yrs. today that you left us here on earth. I'm looking at some of these pictures and it still breaks my heart that you're not here with me anymore. I miss you so much. Just as the song says "Gone too Soon" I feel your loss immensely. I can look at these pics and smile when I see your smiling face but I'm also crying at the same time. You were taken from us way too soon. One day again we'll be together. I love you Den!"
"Happy Birthday to my dear brother Den today! I'm thinking about you a lot. I know if you were here you'd be calling me a couple of different times wondering how much SNOW we got?? Even living in Delaware we're still going to get snow but not as near as our home town - Dighton, MA They're getting a huge blizzard with 30+ inches of snow tonight into tomorrow. Just what you called for? ; o )) I miss you and love you so much!!! Diane "Louise""
"Today is Veterans Day and I'm thinking of you a lot Den. You served two terms in Vietnam and were honored with the Medal of Valor. You were such a selfless, courageous man who served our country. I love and miss you deeply. As a youngster I always went with Ma & Dad to pick you up at the airport. You came off the plane in your Navy uniform looking so good to me. I always had tears in my eyes when I saw you. I was and am so proud of you. You will always be my hero!!! Love you, your lil' sister "Louise" That's what you called me many of times. You know......"
"Hey Den. I am a little bit late but I did remember. Just too busy like always. and like everyone. And I know you would be disappointed to hear that because that was one of your powerful lessons for us, to not let stupid shit in life keep you from connecting with the ones that mean the world to us. But even though you are gone I still remember the subtle lessons and I am still growing from them. You were a very powerful dude with a very soft voice. Miss you still and guess I just always will. BUT !!!!! So glad you were in my life. No one can ever take that away from me. Love you Den. Frank"
"Hi Den, Oh how I wish you were here with me. I miss you every day. I miss all our talks and laughter! Your comforting smile.... Just so many things. I miss my big brother! I know you are at peace in GOD's kingdom laughing and carrying on and probably gardening. I love you very much Den. Today I'm feeling my sadness pretty deeply. I do know you're ok I just miss you a lot. Love you, Diane LOUISE. You're the only one who called me Louise at times teasingly."
"We miss you Papa and think about you all the time. We Love You!!!"
"Dennis I can't believe it has been this long! I know your family still misses you so very much. I pray you are resting peacefully in God's arms. Love Lynn"
"Hi Den, I'm also leaving a flower for you today too on your birthday. You always enjoyed all your flowers, fruit trees, gardens and plants! Love You."
"Hi Den, Happy Birthday! I always loved talking with you on your special day and sharing laughs and having great talks together! You are always on my mind and in my heart. I love you and miss you soooo much."
I can't believe it's been 3 yrs. today that we said our good-byes. I remember every moment like it was yesterday. You're on my mind daily. I have awesome memories but I miss you soooo much. I love you."

I love ya brother, and I miss you and always will."
"Happy Birthday my big brother Dennis! In your honor and to honor our family name, last year I changed my last name to Motta-Stevenson. I am so proud to have my maiden name back.
