I did not know Denise well, but I worked with her husband for many years at the Coliseum Same Day Surgery where he was a physician and I was a nurse. Over the years everyone got to know our families well per stories we would share. Denise was fondly known as the "general" at his house. That meant pretty much I think her word was the final word in a lovingly way. We would get many giggles out of the stories Dr. Ellis would tell us especially the night that she went out with her girlfriends and had baked our surgery center a cake. Well, their dogs somehow pulled the cake off the counter and ate it. Dr. Ellis had to call Denise which was not a good idea on ladies night out. She informed him that she was not making another cake but he could if he wanted to so she gave him the instructions. So, as it happens , he did go get more ingredients and made us another pumpkin cake. He said the "general" was pretty put out with the whole deal. It was a very funny story. I also remembered Denise's love for helping at the rescue for the dogs. She & Dr. Ellis both were great supporters of any group and personally donated to my group in Milledgeville. I also felt she and her husband had such a special bond as a couple and with their son, Chris. The world has lost a wonderful loving caring lady. My sympathies to the family.
