Dear Bruce and family, I was saddened to hear of DeAnn's passing. Mom told me about it yesterday. I have fond memories of your family while living in Mt. Green several years ago. Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Jeff Bigler & Family Cedar City, UT.

Our condolences to your family at this time of great loss. We pray your broken hearts will be comforted by the love and precious memories of your sweet wife, mother and grandmother. We became acquainted with Sister Galbraith while attending the Ogden Temple together on Wednesdays before the temple was closed, and we felt the love and goodness that radiated from her. We used to see her on a fairly regular basis and she always recognized us and greeted us warmly. We loved her smile and her kind and friendly personality. We resumed our Wednesday schedule once the temple was rededicated and were delighted to see her again recently. To our amazement, she remembered us and greeted us warmly. We were so sad to read of her passing. We will miss her! Phyllis White & Betty Jean Spaulding

May offer my deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your companion, mother, and grandmother. I met her for the first time when I was at the chapel door serving in the temple. She was such a sweet lady. I know from experience it is not easy loosing a companion. I pray the Lord's blessing to be with you always.

Bruce, We were saddened when we heard of the unexpected passing of DeAnn. Life is never free from the less desirable experiences and the loneliness that comes with the separation from a loved one. There has to be comfort, however, knowing what the Gospel teaches us and understanding how eternal covenants bridge the gap--but we can empathize with the reality of the inevitable loneliness that comes. We love you even though our association has been limited over the years. We admire the great example you two have set and pray the Lord's comfort in your behalf in the coming days. Love, Neil and Joan Flinders

Galbraith family, I worked with DeAnn at the old St. Benedict's Hospital back in the late 60's. I have such fun memories of her. I remember the day she came to the office with her new engagement ring, and was so happy she was going to get married to Bruce. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sincerely, Chena Carpio Wright

Dear Family, DeAnn and I worked together at St Beneficts Hospital in Ogden. We spent a week together on an adventure to Grand Canyon. She was such a fun and awesome friend.
