    Dear Denise and Cherie,

    My deepest sympathies. I remember your mom and dad and you girls from dinner at my mother-inLaw,s house on Clinton Street, sometimes with your Aunt Pat and family too. I remember a lot of laughing, but, ending early so your dad could get home to bed since he got up very early. I remember Denise when you moved to Chicago. Silly the things we remember, but the memories are the treasures of life. Please know Denise and Cherie, you and your families are in my prayers. May God bless and comfort you.

    Ruth and Wayne Maggs

    Dear Denise and Cherie,

    We were so sad to hear about Jeannette. Joe and Jeannette were always there for us through all the tough times, always willing to listen and be our support. We could not have asked for better friends or Great Grandparents. We know she is in heaven with her Joe, but we will miss her deeply. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Love, “Grandma” Peg, Marilyn, Melissa, and Junior

    It’s with heart felt sympathy that we mourn with you the loss of your mother Denise. After reading her obituary, I got a sense of how she cared for others and how her caring has been apart of your life and love for caring for others. What a beautiful legacy to carry on. As scripture tells us, “to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord”. She no longer has to deal with the daily pains of life. We are here for you all if you need us.

    With much love,
    Lee and Toni Hill
