I Miss you Dearly and Think of you Often. You were an inspiration in My Life. We had sports in common “Namely” Basketball. You at St Aug. & me at Shaw U.
I met some incredible people over there that I still converse w/today because of you. I stayed over at St Aug. more than my own school., I soon needed my own School I.D. ;-)
When I heard of your passing “I Was Crushed”!! I still am... such a Beautiful Being.
You would’ve been approaching 25yrs in Law Enforcement and that doesn’t go unnoticed.
I Pray that I see 25yrs of service. I’m now in My 23rd year. The stories we should’ve been sharing.
I Love you Denise and I Forever Thank You for The Time Shared!
