I sit here with tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart, for the parents and family of Dennis and Sean, two of the most kind and Gentle souls I new from high school.

I remember Sean used to act like the meanest, toughest kid in high school. Especially to the young men that used to actually pray on the weaker children at MMU. I used to watch him stick up for the people that were being harassed, and chase the mean ones away.... walking back casually giggling, and laughing out load to himself. I know it was years ago but to this day I will always hold a special place in my mind, and heart for Sean the Kindest, Toughest, Blondest, and most caring BIG Kid around.

I remember Dennis too, just not as well. Dennis was smart, funny and had a laugh and smile that would brighten any sorrowed person that came into his path.

I pray that your family and friends find peace, from all the great memories that were made ,and try and find comfort somehow during this extremely terrible, and sad heart wrenching time of grief.
Taken way too soon and will never understand why.

Just realized today when I was at the Heineberg Club, that you had lost your two grandsons in June.
Ralph and I are so very sorry and you must believe that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We can relate because as you know we lost our only son back in 1973. It is something you never get over. We are thinking of you and your family. In Sympathy and Love, Jan & Ralph Leo, Colchester

Mr. & Mrs. Thibault - Sean was an active member in our guild Dazed and Confused. He was helpful and generous to every member who needed anything and was elected an officer due to his friendly outgoing nature. Please know that his online family will miss him and mourn his passing.

Mr. and Mrs. Thibault, My sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved sons. As a teacher at MMU I knew both of them. Dennis and I were quite close and I loved his sense of humor. He always seemed to have a big, bright smile on his face. Words cannot express the sadness I feel at the loss of your boys.

I have worked closely with Dennis for all of his years at Husky. His skills in resolving computer system issues were amazing. He was always willing to help everyone and could find solutions to problems that were out of reach for many. What I will remember most about Dennis is his charity. He was always helping people with rides, fixing their personal technology devices outside of work, and just doing anything he could to help others. He will be greatly missed. My prayers go out to family and friends at this time of loss.

I'm sorry for your loss. I have lost a son and know the pain you're feeling. I knew Dennis well and only met Sean once. I played softball with Dennis for years. We are all in shock and had no idea anything like this could have occurred. None of the many mutual friends of us could have ever thought of this. They were good man and friend and they will never be forgotten. RIP Dennis and Sean

It hurts so much to know I'll never see either of you again.

Dennis, I was so happy when you started showing more than a passing interest in computers, and so proud of you when your thirst for knowledge landed you your job at IBM. I was even more proud when you walked away from IBMs terrible treatment and found a better job at Husky.

Sean, the times we spent together playing World of Warcraft will always be treasured by me. The game was a plodding mess of repetitive mind-numbing tasks, but just being with you and chatting about your life was priceless to me. When you got the job at Rennline, I was so proud of you. Like Dennis, you were relentless in your pursuit to become the master of your craft, and you were both forging great paths for yourselves.

I love you both so much. I don't understand why it had to end this way. I love you so much, and I miss you.

To the family of the Thibault boys: My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. I can't even imagine what you must be going through. I knew Dennis quite well. He was such a kind man - always very helpful with any kind of 'techy' question I had.... and I am sure he was chuckling to himself as to how 'un-techy' I was. I remember having really cool conversations with him about the universe,space and the planets.... he was such an interesting man and I could tell that he loved teaching me what he knew. Again, my heart goes out to your whole family in your tragic loss.

Jerry and Penny,
You both and your family have been in the forefront of my mind since I heard about your sons. I have only fond memories of time spent with you guys in our youth as well as later in life working with you Jerry. I have so much sorrow thinking how difficult these tremendous losses are for you both. I was actually burying my brother Jim's remains the day I learned of your loss. You guys know that our family and yours have a connection and just know that Tammy, Bill, and myself are thinking and praying for you guys. Those young men were exceptional people coming from you both. I know eventually peace will find you.
