In Memory of Denise
July 29, 1952 - June 1, 2009
Denise played in two duet arrangements. At right you can see more of the arrangement which included six grand pianos with 12 pianists plus two players on each of two electronic keyboards. They also had a flute and drums.
Denise had a couple of turns at the electronic keyboard. In bigger numbers they had 16 keyboard players, as with the skit accompanying the Twelve Days of Christmas.
The 25 musicians take a bow at the end of the outstanding performance. We were particularly proud of Denise, and of Gail Morris at extreme upper right, our church pianist at Mableton First. Several churches and several denominations were represented among the players.
It was a wonderful and rare opportunity to have this family group over to the house for dessert after the piano concert. Shown are Richard Ergle, Mary Daniel, Brenda, Dorothy Watts, Marie Ergle Lewis, Pat Ergle, Roger Boykin, Denise Vaughn, Wesley Duncan, Carol Sue Jones, Alisha, Sherry Dawson, ...
We decided to try to get some family group pictures while we were together. Here we got Wesley, Alisha, Carol, Denise, Roger, Sherry and Brenda.
Now Wesley, Sherry, Denise, Marie, Brenda, Dorothy, Pat and Richard.
With Rod and Brenda are Denise, Marie,Richard, and Dorothy.
With Alisha on the camera, we got Sherry, Denise, Marie, Brenda, Rod, Pat, Richard, Dorothy and Carol.
It was a relaxed time and some of us sat around the den until late, just talking. We had a lot of current events to catch up on, and it is always pleasant to reminisce about the old days.
During the visit of Jeff and family on Sunday afternoon, February 22, Aunt Denise and Aunt Sherry came over and all the ladies got into a game of UNO.
