Denise was incredibly hardworking - someone I looked up to and respected very much. I worked with her for just a little more than a year, and my admiration grew with nearly every interaction. She was always focused, positive, thorough and inspiring. Her work was recently recognized by the Kansas City Data-Driven Marketing Association, winning an AMBIT award in the business-to-business email category. Glad to have known and worked with her.

I met Denise 6 months ago and worked with her almost daily ever since. While I didn't know her very long she made an impact and will be forever remembered.

Strong and Irreplaceable. Kind and Smart. Sweet and Genuine.

Today is a very sad day pretty lady as your family and friends gather to honor your life:(
