I'm profoundly shaken and crushed. My associate Denise D'Ascenzo kicked the bucket all of a sudden today. My heart breaks for her girl and spouse. She was the best in the business. Tasteful, keen, entertaining and kind. That voice. That grin. She was my companion and tutor. I was fortunate to have known her.
