Dean and Family, I worked with Denise years ago in the lab at Bucyrus Community Hospital. She was one of my favorite people ever and I was so sad when you folks moved away. Now, learning of her passing, I am brokenhearted for all of you. Denise will always be remembered as one of the warmest, sweetest, kindest ladies I have ever known. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. My greatest pleasure was working weekends with her!! Even though our paths haven't crossed in decades, I thought of her often. Please know that I share in your grief. My deepest sympathy is extended to you and your family. Linda Leyda
