She knew joy and the joy of the Lord truly was her strength (Ps. 28:7). She experienced joy by spending time loving the people in her life, especially time spent with her grandchildren. She expressed joy by serving in her church either in AWANA, as she did faithfully for over 25 years, or by working in the nursery caring for other's treasures. She loved and was loved! "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13. Denise's life was full and she wouldn't have changed a thing! In lieu of flowers, it was Denise's wish to please give to the Rachel Pruett Medical Fund.
