    Denise was such a wonderful wife, mother and friend. She truly loved putting on those dinner parties for both family and friends… the food was always amazing! She cherished her family and always took an interest even in how her children’s friends were doing. Lisa told me that in one of her last conversations with her mom, Denise asked about my girls and we haven’t seen them in a couple of years but we were still in the forefront of her mind. She truly loved people. She will be missed by many but know that she is with you. Looking out for you. And will continue to love you from across the veil. You will feel her presence often. Always cherish the memories you have and look back at her and see that wonderful smile!
