I am so sorry to hear about Denise’s passing. She was such a talented hairdresser and special person. I was a client of her’s for over 20 years and she gave all of my children their first haircuts! A couple of special memories are when my son wouldn’t sit still and Denise calmly led him to a window where he could watch traffic while she knelt down and finished his cut and when one of my daughters was little she had a beauty shop set and when she played with it she called herself Beauty Shop Denise! Denise had an impact on our lives and many others. She will be missed. Prayers for her family and friends.
