To Ms Denise’s Family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Ms Denise always had a smile on her face in the morning and would light up when she talked about the time she spent with her family. We had the opportunity to have two of our children under Ms Denise’s care we will deeply miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. The Olson Family
Dear Cyndy, Lori and all of your family. Thinking of you during this difficult time. May Peace and Harmony find it’s way to all of your lives. R.I.P Ms. Denise.
I am going to miss you and I love you you will always be in my heart and In my mind now debbie wont be lonely
My Mom, my bestfriend, my everything. I know the last few years were hard on you and you’re no longer in pain of any kind – but I selfishly wanted you here forever! I will miss you more than I can express. When I was a kid, we’d hold hands and you’d squeeze my hand three times which meant “I Love You”, and we’d also have friendly competitions of who could outsmart the other with who loved each other mores.. like, I love you more than there are stars in the sky. Now, I can say I love you more than there are angels in the sky since now you’re one of them and you know there are too many to count. Forever with you, forever with me. Love you always.
Jamie and Cindy, I am sooo sorry to hear of the loss of your mom!! I am heart broken for you all, and your families. It has been quite some time since we have had contact, but I am still at a loss for words. May God hold you all close and help you through this trying time.
You are now with your Heavenly Father. I know your mom and dad will miss you along with your other family members. God be with each and every one of you.
You were such a huge part of my life during my days in the military. I loved you to pieces and am so thankful for the special memories you created for me that will last forever. You kept your Christmas tree with gifts and your home decorated until April for me because I was gone overseas. I remember coming home and we celebrated Christmas together like it was Christmas morning. That is a story I love telling people! Thank you for letting me be part of your life and for coming into mine. I will always love you!
