The moment that sticks in my memory as the worst was when Dennis’s best friend Max Carlisle broke down in the waiting room. I had never seen Max cry before and he was so drained from just saving Dennis's life and then getting him to safety. It was almost more than I could bare because I knew that if he broke down, it had to be bad. Little did I know that if it weren’t for Max, Dennis would not be alive today. They let Max and I see Dennis before the helicopter took him to OKC. As we watched the helicopter fly off, I remember holding on to Don, Dennis’s brother, once again telling him that I could not go on without Dennis.
