Her family says it’s now just a matter of time before Denise passes. Her son, Josh, and his wife are at the hospital with Denise, and have started a GoFundMe to honour Denise’s last wishes of being cremated, and her ashes turned into glass artwork.

Update: It has sadly been announced that Denise has noepassed away in her hospital room Wednesday evening around 10:30 PM Colorado time.
