Always enjoyed our chats on the deck when Bill and Dee Dee hosted the grandkids' birthday parties. We will miss her stories and entertaining sense of humor. So glad she's in Heaven now and reunited with Mitch...I think she missed him a lot.

My favorite kind of people are those who are authentic and not fake. Denise did not have a fake bone in her body and I really loved that about her. I will be praying for your family.
