I remember spending many evenings hanging our with Dee and Dave at their apartment on Chrysler Ave. She was always, sweet, fun and enjoyed music. Lay down your cross DeeDee and pick up your crown. You were a very loving soul.
My prayers are with you Dave and Jerry. God bless, Noelle [Roberson] Marie

We haven't seen each other in a very long time, but I'd like to share my deepest condolences. Denise was a beautiful, fun woman and I have great memories of the band days and getting to know both of you. Denise was always there to support us and I am regretful that we didn't spend more time together back then and especially over the years.

Take comfort in all the beautiful memories of your life together. You are in my thoughts and I hope you are supported by family and loved ones.

With sincere sympathy,
Lou DeMarco
