Denise was a pleasure to work with at SLUH. When I was going through my sickness, she would check on me and as I would check on her. I will miss her smiling face around here but I know she is in a better place. She would assist me in getting the kidney walk together and it's that time now. Family my condolence to you and I will keep you in my prayers.

I worked down the hall from Denise at SLUH. She was always such a sweet, kindhearted woman. The world is a dimmer place without her in it. Hugs and prayers to you all.

I worked w Denise for years at MoBap. She was such a sweet heart! No matter what project we were working on together, she was so easy to work with and made sure that marketing piece was the best. Her smile and presence was so comforting. She will be missed!! My thoughts and prayers to all the family, esp her husband and kids.

I didn't know Denise well but I often stopped by the PR office at SLUH to see if they had any free goodies. She was always warm and inviting with a gentle sweetness about her. Had a good sense of humor and always willing to chuckle at a joke to help the day pass a little easier.
So sorry about her families loss, she will be missed here.

I met Denise through Andrea Crowder Khoury back in 1995. Denise had an infectious personality and made everyone around her feel so welcome. We shared many laughs together and Im so saddened to learn of her passing. My prayers are with your family during this difficult time.
