I remember Denise could whistle so loud , she tried her best to teach me but I never could get the hang of it . Finally she decided I just had to cheat and use my fingers ! She was always laughing and so full life . You couldn’t be sad around denise she wouldn’t let you !

Nobody was a better person. No matter your faults, you never knew you had any when with Denise . . . She always laughed and had the biggest, most beautiful and contagious smile! She never failed to make you feel comfortable and always welcomed you into her home, always. I look forward to seeing her again.

Your smile made everyone smile and your laugh was contagious. You will be missed.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Revelation 21:4 (KJV)

I’m gonna miss our times together whether playing scrabble, setting on the porch, paying bills and meeting with your momma at Walmart and heading somewhere to have good food and conversation. I will treasure all of our times together. Miss you sooo much. Thank you for never giving up on me.
