The world lost a beautiful soul.
When I think of Denise, I think of the sound of her laughter and how contagious it was. It's rare in life you come across people who show you the beauty in even the smallest of things. Thank you Denise for your guidance. The time I was apart of your life was amazing and we have memories I will always carry in my heart. You always reminded me to keep my head up and smile no matter what I was up against.
You will be truly missed, but I know you are at peace. Love you.

I remember her bright smile and positive attitude while working with her in two different Fry's Food stores. God Bless her family and friends. Give them the strength they need to overcome their sorrow and accept the fact that her spirit lives on through her daughter. Tears, talk and time heals all things.

Third barrel behind you, finish line crossed.
One beautiful ride, but time too short.
Sweet rest, my friend.
