Leave Condolences


I am so very sorry for the death of your mother. I didn't know her, but I know you, and therefore she has got to be one very special lady. Let me know what I can do to help you. You're in good hands with my brother Brent. He is the best at times like this. Just know I love you and that your friendship means so much to me. So glad we have the gospel to get us through the sad times like these. I know the hole she leaves will be huge. Call me anytime. It is way past time for lunch...
Love ya,

Kathy Kent

Dear Duane and family,
So sorry for the loss of Dalene, she was a very special lady. Even though Andy and I only seen you occasionally we always enjoyed your visits.Its always hard to loose the one you love, but thankfully we have the gospel and know we will meet again.

For many years I spoke with Dalene, but never really met her. I was the Athletic Director at Ogden High School and whenever I needed something from Box Elder High School Dalene got it for me! She helped me so much when I first started at the AD. She was so super friendly and always went out of her way to help me. I'm sure she will be missed and I have really appreciated her friendship over these years! I'm sorry for your loss!

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. She was such a sweet lady. I thought so much of her and just loved her.

Vauna Palmer


My thoughts and prayers are with you. May God bless you. I knew Dalene as child. I lived across the street from her on 3rd West.

I am sorry that I missed the viewing. Dalene brought a smile to my face many a day at Box Elder High School. She was always pleasant and cared deeply for all of us that counted her a friend. A gallant and giving woman who was always there when needed. The memories of those days are all the sweeter due to people in my life like Dalene. I am sure that she is busy on the other side of the veil doing things just like she did here---making life here a little bit of heaven.

Dan and Susie,
