This is so sad. I remember her coordinating the group picture we took, on the beach in Seaside Heights, at our 30th class reunion. And I remember, in high school, she was always smiling, and always so nice to me.
You will be missed, Denise. Rest In Peace dear friend. Sending prayers, comforting thoughts, and sincere condolences, to your family and friends.

My condolences, thoughts, and prayers for your family's loss. From the time Denise and her family moved from Elizabeth to Seaside Heights through high school and into college we were best friends. Inseparable. We took turns every week eating and or sleeping over each other's house. I have to admit I was a little bossy at times with her in grade school. Until one day she got fed up and punched me in the arm, hard!!!! From then on she was the boss!!!! And that was ok with me. We always had each others' back. When my Father passed away suddenly when we were 13, (our birthdays were 1 day apart) and someone in my family asked me if I needed anything, my answer was Denise. She was scared to come, she didn't know what to do for me. I was scared as well, neither of us knew how to handle death. She came dispite her fear to console her best friend. Just her being there to give me a hug was such good medecine.
I am not sure where the phrase, only the good die young came from, but it is certainly the case here. She was generous, loving, funny, and tough as nails. She fought a really good fight. Now she is at peace. The living are the ones who are in pain. But all of her friends and family have an abundance of great memories to keep her spirit alive. Rest in peace Denise. And may God Bless and bring peace to all of your loved ones.
