Denise will be missed by all who knew and love her.  She fought for years to find what she needed in life.  I think she was happy at the end coming home to PA to see all her children and grandkids living in PA.  She was very happy to see her new grandchild Carter.  I really feel in my heart we did the best for her in the end.  She spoke with her sister and brother in her the last few days.  I feel she was a peace with her life when she past.  I hope and wish she is very happy and finds what she need in her new adventure. God bless with love Renee
