“Denise Hunter was my second cousin. Her mother sent mine a photo taken on 11-4-1978 on Denise's 26th birthday; the photo was mailed on Nov. 14th. My aunt describes Denise as "real fair, gray eyes and light brown hair," 5'5" tall in a letter to my mother. I quote, "She always had a smile and was loved by everyone that knew her." Also there was a newspaper clipping by Larry Romero, Bee Staff Writer.” - Anonymous

“Denise was a great friend of mine, I spoke with her just before she left to go to San Francisco / Guyana. She was a beautiful person...I just don't understand why things happen this way? I'm sure she's in a better place now...she loved everyone! Rest in Peace Denise...I will see you again. ” - Ken Atkins
