Denise was one of the most genuine, kind, sweet lady I have ever known. Being her Sister-in-law, I had the joy of watching her have 3 beautiful children, Shawn, Chris, and Cassidy, and share her daughter Danielle. She loved her kids so much and was always happy for a “photo” opportunity, which I took advantage of when I could. I am so thankful that I got to spend some quality time with Denise at my Brother’s home not long ago. We talked mostly about Grandkids and how proud she was of hers. We also talked about our illinesses, the pain, and the hope we both had for better days ahead. I did not get to spend as much time with her as I wanted as we lived in separate towns, but we made up for it at family gatherings. My Brother always included her in all of the family time, and I am so grateful he did. A beautiful lady, inside and out, I willl always remember her sweet smile that always brought a smile to my face. Rest in Peace sweet girl. Love you with all my heart. Suzy
