My condolences to the whole family. I just heard the sad news from a neighborhood friend. I hadn't seen DeNova often in the past few years, but once in a while we would come across each other walking the neighborhood trail and stop for a chat. She was such a supportive and caring person, always ready with a smile. I felt a kinship with her because of our temperaments and some of our life choices. I will miss her.

My heart is sad. I was Abby & Matthew's piano teacher for a short period of time, and it was wonderful to get to know DeNova. What a loving and supportive mother who will truly be missed. My heart and prayers go out to the family.

DeNova is one of the most amazing women I know! Her care for others was of a magnum magnitude! She will be missed until I see her again and then for eternity because of Jesus! I have no doubt in her faith nor in the Truth of God's Word that by grace we are saved when we accept His gift of Christ's death for our sin.

While I didn't know DeNova well, I talked with her here and there over the years at Bel Pres. I felt she was one of those people who one felt comfortable with immediately.Her smile and friendly demeanor as well as our few mom conversations made an impression on me that she was a special person. My thoughts and prayers go out to Abby and DeNova's family and friends. May God give you peace during this very sad time.
