    I am still shocked about Denise, when Carl Bartke said to me did you year about Denise, I said yes she is getting married, good for her and then he told me. She was a special person and friend whom I will miss very much. My sympathies to all her family whom are very special people too. Love Sue

    First of all I am shocked at the news of Denise’s death. I went to school with her and was always delighted to see her. We met up a few times in our professional lives. My condolence to the family and friends of Denise. She will be sadly missed. She was a great person and a fun person to be around. I will miss her smile.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    I don’t really know what to say, except my prayers and thoughts are with you. Since my mother’s funeral I can’t bring myself to go to anyone’s. Christy, Denny and good ol’ Di DEE I know you more then the rest of the family and I’m extenting my love, thoughts, and prayers to you. I will always remember the day Neecie and I graduated from Bay. I was in a wheelchair then and she wheeled me to the stage to get my ASSOCIATE’S. She was always so full of love for my family and I. I will miss her beautiful smile and personality always.

    Our family extents sympathy to you all.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Christy and her family. We are so deeply sorry for your loss and would like to share this poem I found and hope you might find some comfort.

    Why so soon should we be parted?
    To leave us all here broken hearted
    You gave to us the gift of life
    And kept us safe from harm and strife
    So much love you had to give
    which gives us the strength to live
    without having you by our side
    And to have loved you fills our hearts with pride
    You were our rock, our guide,
    best friend and mother
    Unique, there will never be
    quite another

    To a better place now
    you have gone;
    From this world, yet
    Your spirit will forever live on
    All the joyous times we laughed together
    Will be with us always and forever
    So many memories in our hearts
    We’ll never really be apart.

    I want to express my sympathy to your family and to Jeff. I didn’t know Denise very well or for very long, but I was fortunate to spend quite a few days with her in the hospital in Escanaba. I was her nurse. I enjoyed spending time with her. I could tell that Denise was a very special person and that she will be greatly missed by all. God bless all of you.

    Denise was a very sweet and outgoing lady. Our lives are better for having known her and she will be missed by both of us.
