The first time I met my 2nd cousin Denika was in July of 1990. We went to pick her up at Yarmouth Airport in Nova Scotia. She had flown in to attend her Aunt Vi's Wedding.

I was videoing as she entered the terminal. She had me laughing from the get go. So proud of her tan, lifting her shirt sleeve to show her tan line. She kept repeating Toronto Tan, Toronto Tan!

She then starting talking with a foreign accent, she had the accent down to a tee. I remember her father, Dolin talking to her one day, she stayed in character. No matter how hard Dolin tried, he had to laugh.

Denika was a precious soul, and at the age of 56 she had a lot of live to live. Denika will live on in her children, her parents, her sister, her family and friends. Denika thank you for the laughs. For the rest of my life when I think of you, it will bring a smile to my face. God Bless you cousin and God Bless your family! ♥️

Taylor, Nicole, Ethan, Wilf,

Our sincerest condolences for your loss. Denika and I had some fun times while living in Peel Village. We weren’t just neighbours but also friends and soccer mates. I remember how Denika had a pleasant way of igniting energy and light around people with her big bright eyes and smile. She was always open to the kids playing together, as she loved company and conversations. She was a big help scooping them up after school if I was running late. Grateful for the little favours we exchanged over time.
Life sent us in different paths but Denika’s energy, kindness and laughter will never be forgotten. May she rest in eternal peace.

To the one who helped break me out of my Capricorn shell <3 Your love, your warmth, the unconditional love you emitted...something so special, An angel you are.

Whilst time has passed, you never fail to cross my mind. I'm sure you knew, how much your love and acceptance meant to me. You gave me a second home, you shared your infinite heart with me and bonded us all as family.

Whether, here or there I hope you know how much your love has spread throughout the lives of many.

To, Tay, Nicky, Ethan and Wilf

I love you all so much and care about you all forever and always.

From my family to yours, we send our love, prayers and blessings.

We all love her so much and love you all so much.
