Gone but not forgotten

Denise and Dean, our thoughts and prayers are with both of you and your families during this difficult time.

As a close friend of Denise’s growing up, I was lucky to spend a lot of time with Rita. Rita was always there for Denise and didn’t hesitate to open her heart and home to Denise’s friends – of which there were many! We had so many good times and great memories. Rita was a special lady who would do anything for us. In later years, she was there with Denise for some of my most precious life milestones, such as my bridal shower and most recently to give me wise advice on raising my son when she learned I was expecting. Her kindhearted, fun loving and easy to talk to manner will never be forgotten. She will be missed dearly. Love you Denise. Love you Rita.

Sending my heartfelt condolences to Denise, Dean, & Hailey, as well as Dean, Darlene, & the girls. My thoughts are with you all.
