Denise possessed one of the most beautiful smiles and a laugh that seemed to be contagious. Her personality was often the kind one would gravitate to. She was an honest, God-loving woman. Family was of the most importance in her life. Her husband was the love of her life and her kids were the reason she loved. Her grandchildren were the loves of her heart. Denise had many friends that she also cherished and loved. Denise will surely be missed, this world will truly be less without her, but Heaven has definitely gained a beautiful Angel.
