Denise, I will miss you! You were such a blessing in our lives. Such a sweet, caring person. I'm so sad that you've been taken from us way too soon! But I know that you are not suffering anymore and that you are flying free now with the angels and with Jesus. I know big Ferny and your boys will all miss you so much. Ferny, little Ferny, Eric and Tony and family, you all have our sympathy and prayers.
