Our friend Betty Jean at Free Us Now sends the following sad news:
Denise Ann Richardson, my beloved daughter, entered the world 9-7-63. She made this world a better place. Escorted by her brother Mikie, who preceded her by 9 years, and on the wings of angels, left us with a smile 3-7-09.
She battled ovarian cancer for nearly 36 months. She spent her final 36 hours surrounded with love was comforted by those she loved and trusted including Louisa who was with her in a special way. She got to Say I love you and kiss us goodbye. We got to say thank you. We got to say I love you. And kiss her goodbye. Denise did a lot of great things, for a lot of people. Anyone that ever met Dee had something to thank her for.
The Confluence would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Betty Jean and her family for their loss. We also keep in our thoughts Louisa, who was callously shot by her former brother-in-law just before Christmas and remains critically injured. We hope for a day when Betty Jean will be free from sorrow and will once again taste the sweetness of life. We’re here for you Betty Jean.
