Deepest condolences to the family. Denise was one of my oldest and dearest. It’s hard to imagine the world without her unbridled love and laughter. So many good times together. My favorite poet. And a lovely soul. Love you and miss you always.

I’ve known Denise since she worked with my mom at Martins Ferry Hospital about 40 years ago. She had the kindest heart and the most bubbly of personalities. My heart aches for those she left behind, but I am confident she earned her wings.
