      It was my pleasure to have known Denise—her children were under my counseling at George Washington High School. Marvin and Denise were involved parents and always checking to make sure they were doing all that she expected from them. This is an amazing family and I know their hearts are heavy. I so understand as I just lost my husband to Covid. Hope to see you all soon. Ms. Eller

  2. Auntie Denise, your family in Chicago is truly feeling this loss to our family, you were the baby and my mother, Dortricia, the second oldest sister-loved you as we all did. Your voice with that West Virginia twang always made me smile when ygiys were on the phone together. Their were a lot of miles between us but you will always be in our hearts. To Uncle Marvin, and our cousins know that your Chicago family love you all and will always have you in prayer.
