    Mary Ann, I am truly saddened by passing of Denise. Denise was more than just a friend; she was an wonderful person. Her passing will not only leave a void in our lives, but in the hearts of everyone who knew her. My last e-mail from Denise was Sept 7. I didn't get to say good-bye. I will truly miss her.
