    Denne, was an amazing woman. The word “unique” fits her better than most people. She was bold, brave, and real. She and I went back farther than her being a member of Faith Christian Center or a doctoral graduate from our Central Arkansas Bible College. We were friends for over 40 years. She loved and preached the message of faith. She was loved by her church and known as the kitchen captain. You better put stuff back where she had it. She always went the second mile and third if necessary to lead a person to the right path. We had nick names fir each other. She called me Red Ryder and I called her “Lil’ Beaver. Her last text to me a few days before she went yo heaven ended as usual: “You betchum Red Ryder” she was one of my dearest friends. I miss her terribly. Pastor Betty
    “See ya soon, ‘Lil Beaver.”

    Denne was one of the most “on fire for God” women I have been blessed to know. She was spirited, loving, honest and made you feel so loved. I cherish all the years and memories I got to share with her. While I miss her here, I know she is in the presence of Almighty God.

    Denne was my best friend as well as my sister. She went along with me all the time when we were young even when she didn’t want to and we would get in trouble. She stood by me always, she was the one I would call when things would get bad and she would always give me a Godly answer. I will miss her more than words can say and I will love her till the day I die. When that day happens I’ll get to see her again. I love you Sissy and I thank you for all the joy you brought into my life. She had a smile that would light up New York when she was young. And she had the eyes that sparkled to go with it. She was a beautiful person inside and out and I will miss her greatly. Sissy until we meet again I will try to do all the good things you told me to.
