    Denise was more than a boss to me when I worked for walmart, she was like a mom I never had. She had an infectious smile and always had kind words to say to me and those around her. She was always bringing joy into any room she walked into. I will miss her terribly, may she rest well. She was truly a blessing and an angel on this earth. We will miss you Momma D

    There are no words to express how sorry we are. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I had the pleasure of meeting Denise (Niecy) at her daughter Rhonda’s graduation from Michigan State University. Denise was also the quintessential mother of the bride brimming with pride at Rhonda and Juan’s wedding. A wonderful lady. Our family has had the fortunate pleasure of knowing Denise and her family, because of the close friendship our daughters have maintained since High School.
    Love Never Fails, Thomas & Denise
    RIP Niecy🌹
