    Kendra, Rita, and Family, I am utterly in disbelief! I am so very sorry to hear about Denise’s passing! I haven’t seen her since we were kids but will never forget what good friends we were all those years ago, growing up on Main St. She was always so nice and I can remember her laugh as well. May God wrap his arms around you all and comfort you in the coming days, weeks, and beyond. Kendra, we have talked recently and if you need anything, please try and get ahold of me (I am here for you dear friend). I will be thinking of you all! Rest in peace “Dee Dee!”
