A true Matriarch of her family. A guiding light to the challenges of Motherhood, principled, fair, caring. Blessed are those who met her and/or shared a moment in her life.

I didn't have the pleasure to meet her, but felt I did, from all the years, of Denise, talking about her. This truly is one, large, close family who cared deeply, for their mother.
