  14. Butch, Sandie and AJ Agresta :

    Denise was a strong and loving woman. A wonderful wife to my brother, mom and grandmother. On a lighter note, my brother Tommy managed our softball team. Denise and my wife came to the games. One night Denise had a disagreement on the Umpires call and he kicked her out of the park. Denise told my wife “I will be back”. She went to her car, changed her bright yellow shirt to a green shirt she had in the car and came back to the park. The umpire never noticed. God bless, rest in peace.
