Denise was a fierce loving mom! I enjoyed our talks during down time between shows with CYT.
Prayers and Love to her family.

Denise was a special person! She carried a twinkle in her eyes and infectious laughter. We met while working at AT&T over 30 years ago and the stories we had searching flea markets and country fairs for that piece of jewelry or antique could fill a book. I will forever cherish those excursions! Love you always Denise❤️

Denise was always so kind to me and made me feel loved. She was a great friend and treated my son like her own. I am so thankful for her. I will miss her and will always treasure our time and adventures together.

Denise was one of a kind! She loved fiercely, and protected those she loved even more so. She was filled with kindness, compassion, love, always kept it real with you, and was a true friend. She treated me like a son, and I look forward to seeing her again one day.

Denise and I have been long time friends for over 35 years. She had an infectious laugh that I will never forget. Go rest high on that mountain, Denise. Until we meet again. I will miss you immensely.
