I will never forget Dr Deren . 10 years ago he saved my husbands life with surgery.He was probably the most companionate and kindest person that I was privileged to have meet . Ive thought of him through the years with fondness and will continue to think of him .Im so deeply sorry for your great loss.

Mrs. Deren,

I am sorry for your loss, and for what the medical community has lost. Dr. Deren cared deeply about his family, his patients and his profession. He was always kind to me at the Connecticut State Medical Society. He believed in the power of physicians standing up for their patients. I only hope the next generation picks up the torch.

It was a privilege to work next to him for many years at the BOCC.H I got to know him not only as a caring physician but a guy who could recite Shakespear (sp- sorry Mike)sonnets by heart, quiz me about world history, tell me about chess, and give a reading list that he believed everyone should have read. All this at lunch and after work sit-ins. I will miss him and send my condolences to his wife, sister and family.

Dear Anne marie, I was so saddened to read about Dr. Deren. I can remember all of us going to Susan Pellegrinos house at halloween with all the kids and watching them bob for apples, Dr. D really got a huge kick out of that. God bless you and your family at this sad time...
