Connie and Wilbur, I have thought of you so much lately. I would have been at the service but I was fighting my own battle during that time. God wanted Denise for his reason. She is an angel now, I don't think I could live through what your family has had to go through. She was a very loving person. Johnette was too. Love , Dolly and Wayne
