Dena shared her love of Blue Healers with me- had one for many years. She was such a good friend to my dad- Hank Wagner. I had a lot of fun at their place as a child. Many many memories!!!!

Dena was so special to me she helped shaped me into the women I have become. She showed me love and shared so much of our family life with me. I Will miss her. She was the glue that held the extended family together. I am grateful to have had Dena be apart of my life. What a treasure . I am glad that I get to call her my Aunt and my friend...

We were very saddened to hear about Dena. Although I knew her from brief encounters through my Mom she was someone you immediately felt, "she was someone genunine". I know that my Mom will miss her dearly as Dena and Mom were best of friends, she talked about Dena regularly when we would talk. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

What a beautifully written life story. I shared it with my own children so that they could understand the context of their own lives, as descendants of Rosa and Alyosius Erker.

Grace and peace to the family,

Stacy Albers Wiebe
