As we all travel through our lives, we meet new people. When I met Anthony my world changed. I believe in love and happiness. When I got the chance to meet his family I was ecstatic. When I met his mother, Catherine, I felt like I had known her for years. We both enjoyed so many things alike and seeing how much she loved her family made me appreciate my love for mine. She was a light in the dark. Sweet as candy and I saw where Anthony got his wit. I am grateful to have known such a wonderful woman. She will always carry a place in my heart. With all the love and respect- Denise❤️

Mama, I always dreaded this day! I never wanted it to come. Im sorry if I forget everything you wanted me to do for your funeral, I'm trying to remember it all. You are so amazing, even God couldn't wait to bring you home! You were my rock til the end. I would have given anything to keep you here with me. I don't even know what I'm going to do without bugging you anymore! I know you are the most stunning angel of all and I'm so blessed that you are my angel now Mama. Please know that Iove you so very much and I will miss you til the day I see you again! Go dance in your red high heels with Dad and fly with your beautiful wings! I love you Ole'Lady! 💔
