    Mrs. Farrell and Farrell family, we were so very sorry to hear this news. Mr. Farrell was such an amazing guy who seemed intent on getting the most out of life.

    My time with Dennis at the Catholic Radio station was among the more fun times I have had these past years. He was always one to keep everyone happy. The time that he and I were roommates in Italy were also great. I will miss this man and from the things he did to help and promote our faith, I think he will be sorely missed in our diocese.

    My deepest condolences to Dennis’ family. Dennis was a wonderful man with a kind heart and great smile. Dennis was a Eucharistic Minister at Sisters Hospital for many years. He will be greatly missed by everyone that had the good fortune to know him. Dennis always had a beautiful smile and kind words for staff and patients as he offered Holy Communion. Thank you for sharing him with us. Dennis was tremendous asset to the Mission Team at Sisters Hospital and will be hard to replace. God Bless you all.

    Dennis and I went back to St Teresas’s in South Buffalo and at reunions we could laugh about elementary school, Seneca Street and mutual acquaintances. We became Facebook friends and were able to chat back and forth. I loved seeing pics of him on his trips to see family. Rest in peace my friend.

    Heard this morning after prayers at 2500 Main St. of your loss. I’m sorry and will keep your intention in prayer. My last visit with Dennis was during the fall fund raiser at the radio station. He was always a joy to be with and will always remember him.
