i met Denise when I went to church at victory tabernacle in Dowagiac, Michigan. she was a kind woman who loved all of us kids unconditionally. super talented, she used to have us teens come and stay over night at her house and she'd take us everywhere and feed us and countless times of fun and understanding when we needed a helping hand in the bible. i just dont even know where to begin. I will always love her and i will never forget her kindness ever...
