Dennis (Dr. K) is a kind and compassionate person who treated each person as a unique human being. Dennis's counseling needs were much more than just “friendly talk” and were based solidly on clinical research. Dr. K. never used a cookie-cutter approach with his students or with his clients. Dennis is sorely missed by all who knew him.

Dr. K. (Dennis) is the most patient and kind person who treated his clients non-judgmentally and their counseling need to be much more than just “friendly talk” which was solidly based on clinical research. In other words, no cookie-cutter approach but met each individual's needs with the utmost care. He is my friend and confidant and helped me to face the darkness and see the light at the end of it. Dennis will be sorely missed until we meet again.

Dr. Kreinbrook will be infinitely missed through the area and his life has left a significant impact on others both as Doctors, nurses, coworkers, clients, and students.

I am greatly saddened by this news and wish you surviving family condolences and comfort as you go through this hard time. May hedges of angels hold you up and may you find comfort in the love surrounding you through family and friends.

I missed the viewing, I was unaware of the arrangements. Life is such a fine thread and thinly connected. One minute we are here, one minute we are gone. Tis our hour upon the stage. His was dynamic and purposeful. He helped many.

God Bless. Sending Love and Hugs....Melody....I wish you strength to get through this time and offer help as you need. *724) 972-6409
