Denise had a passion for music and dancing, and she enjoyed helping the children in our family with school work. She was always concerned of the well-being of her family and friends.
Denise was known to be the life of the party, no matter what the occasion. She would light up the dance floor with her dancing moves, and beautiful voice, she was known by her friends as the Diva of the dance floor. Denise kept the family connected by reminding us of birthdays, anniversaries, or just a simple doing well notice. She brings a smile or laughter to everyone she come in contact with by singing, dancing, joking or just showing them unconditional love.
