My prayers are with you during the loss of your Dear Sister Denise. A sisters love is prescious, and Denise valued that sisterly bond.
I met Denise year's ago through Bertha Harris and the three of us became inseparable. Good people are immediately attracted to one another...and that was Denise.
We all know it is hard to say goodbye to love ones and friends, but this is not goodbye, Denise is just a Prayer away.
Peace be with you all.. God is with you.
