Denise Faith Garrison b. April 30, 1971 (Anaheim Memorial Hospital, Orange County, CA)
The following stories/pictures are of my only child, a daughter, Denise. I have tried to piece together the chronological stages of her life. As you will see, Denise got her mother's looks, not mine!
Denise's Early Years
Denise the "House Climber" (Salt Lake City) 1974
This is one of many stories that I will tell regarding my daughter, Denise's early life. On this particular occasion Theresa, Denise and Yours truly had driven to SLC (Salt Lake City) to visit with Paco & Kathy at their Laird Street address. It wasn't too long after we had arrived when a 3-year-old Denise went missing. A search party was formed and I took the backyard, when I hear a faint call of distress coming from above. I nearly had a heart-attack when I looked up and saw Denise straddling the top of this two-story house. I told her not to move and she did exactly that, whereupon, I retrieved her and in doing so, we learned an important lesson in parenting: always expect the unexpected! I forgot about Paco who was looking in the front-yard and who had one of Denise's shoes fall at his feet, but, by this time I had a firm grip on her arm and was taking her off the roof. Holy sh*t, we dodge a bullet on that one! The photo below is that of the roof that Denise climbed and conquered at the tender age of three!
