Denise had a very hefty laugh and a great smile that I will never forget.

She will be missed.

I went to school with Denise from Kindergarten. After moving away from Ohio I've lost touch with everyone. I was very sad when I heard of her passing.

our relationship was odd yet realy fun!  she was like a familar stranger. We met walking home from grade school (Washinton grade  school) When we found out our names were the same, we had a bond,we were the only Denises in our world. walkin home from school she was so funny always laughing and happy,and she made me feel safe.  I was the size of a toddler, lol WHEN WE WERE THE 5TH GRADE MY my family moved AWAY FROM PARK AVE...I lost my familar stranger friend forever.  I had never seen her until the 8th grade. One day we wher changing class, We Saw  each other at the same time. She came up and gave me a big ol' hug. and I got that old warm fuzzy feeling again....As time went by we saw less and less of each other in passing and when in high school I never saw her again....goes to show that even the smallest things that impact our lives was ment to be....Thank u God for giving me my name sake,  and my familar stranger friend....
