You will be truly missed by everyone whose heart you have touched. You were always so fun to be around. I remember when we were little and the family would be together all the time. There were lots of laughs and lots of good times spent together. Although I've been too far away to visit I've thought of you often. I will miss you dearly Aunt Denise and will look forward to the day we are together again.

Denise and I really got reacquainted again through Facebook, but were good high school friends when her and her family attended school in Albany. I am so saddened for her friends and family and know she left this world way too soon. I will be sending thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

We are not meant to understand everything that happens while we are on earth. Prov 3:5,6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.
After all these years we had just got back in touch with each other. Wish we could of had more time together. Remembering you with fond memories. May the the deepest sympathy and thoughts of those who care so much comfort your family & friends during this time of sorrow. I know you will miss her so much. Sending all of your family my love.

Denise was full of life,always fun, and kind hearted. You could always count on her (without even needing to ask) if you needed her. She was wonderful to both my parents and myself. One of those friends that went above and beyond and always smiled. I will always have a special place in my heart for Denise and smile when I think of her. I will miss her terribly...already do. My condolence to her family and friends. What a loss. RIP. Love you Denise, forever and always. Until we meet again... This should have never happened.

Denise was truly the highlight of my day when I got to see her. She always made me laugh, and I always gave her a hard time that she could never come to physical therapy without getting all dolled-up first. I will miss seeing her every week and was truly saddened by her passing. She will surely be missed. Condolences and prayers to her family.
