Ms. Denise was a beautiful, amazing woman. She brought sparkle to everything! I am so sad to hear of her passing. The Cy Fair community lost a sweet lady, but the sky gained a star. I'll miss seeing her at my volleyball matches.

Such a loving girl. She and Angela had to leave this world too soon. She was a good Girl Scout. Gloria Wilburn

I shared many aspects of my life with Denise from school, sports and rodeo/and many dances. She lived life to its fullest and was always a ray of sunshine when with her. She'll be missed by many.

I will always remember the fun times we had in high school and visiting with you at the Houston rodeo. I saw the pictures from our last reunion where I was dancing with you and Linda. You will be missed.

I'm so sorry to hear about your family loss. Denise was one of my bestest childhood neighbor friend and I smile at all the cherished memories I have of her. Especially teaching Karen/myself how to drive her VW Beetle, which was standard transmission. Going to Tin Hall we would argue who was going to have a turn--LOL. She introduced me to country western music venues like Bill Mraz and Dancetown as well. Oh what fun times we all had so now she is dancing in heaven with her parents and my dad too Rudy A. Fuentes--how awesome is that!! Prayers to your family and till we meet again Denise my friend!!
