I am so sorry for your loss. She was so sweet every time I brought my kids to the farm, she was open arms with them and my daughter with special needs. Always made them feel special (and they did because they "personally" new a farmer/roll model). She was such a beautiful soul and will be terribly missed by people I'm sure she did not know she impacted. We will think of her every time we go there. Much love to the family. Again I am so sorry for this loss of an amazing lady.

Denise was taken way too early in her life as we all know. I have never met anyone who was dealing with such a terrible diagnosis to maintain such strength and courage. From my conversations with her over the past weeks not one moment did she fell sorry for herself. Her concerns were for Tom,Tim and Jennifer never ever herself. May she Rest In Peace by her mother’s side. Sincere condolences to her family
