Cheers to you Sissy on your journey, I remember with fondness playing in the creek at Grandmother

I went to school with Denise.... I will always remember her as a free spirit. She was greatly loved and will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. I am so proud to have called her "my friend" . Rest with God till we meet again, my friend.

Denise had a big heart. She loved my Mom, and would keep an eye on her from her window. If I was at Mom's working, she would grab a rake or wheelbarrow and help. She would walk to Mom's house and visit almost every day. Even though Dementia prevented her short term memories, she could remember things from a long time ago, like in elementary school when Louise, Denise, and I were in the same classroom. We sat in the back of the room and talked too much. She loved animals very much. At last, Dementia robbed Denise of her health. Now she can rest in peace . Prayers for the family.
