I had the privilege of working with Denise in Aultman ER. She was a kind, compassionate woman who was also a top-notch nurse. Her smile was beguiling and her demeanor always upbeat. She was easy to spot from a distance with her lovely dark red hair. The streets of Heaven are well watched with Denise there now. My sincerest sympathies.

From another Denise Marie.
