Words can never express our feelings of shock and sadness, however I wanted to share my thoughts best I could. Denice was a class ahead of me, graduating with my older brother, but we knew each other nevertheless. She looked me up years ago on Facebook and it was good to know that she was still in town and doing well.
Sometimes I would see her positive and/or friendly posts on my social feed and give her a thumbs-up or she vice-versa. I remember her in high-school always wearing a smile and her flare for friendships was bountiful! I was thinking of her the other day and wondering why I had not seen her feeds lately; so sorry to hear of her passing. Fly high, sweet friend! Prayers to her loved ones. ~God Bless

A sleepless night brought me to Facebook where I scrolled down to a message that said you had passed. I am sorry something a silly as local politics got in the way it's friendship. I still consider you a friend even though we didn't seem to see eye to eye. Rest In Peace! I will miss you.
