Denise Bilton was a beautiful soul who deserved much better. The girl walked a hard road in this life and never complained and was never bitter and never stopped loving. She was so strong in so many ways and was the support for so many others. She was a loving sister, mother, grandmother, and even a great grandmother. And once she was my girlfriend. I thought I could save her and I know she wanted to be saved. Heroin takes no prisoners.
A good person passed this way. Barbara "Denise" "Nici" Bilton fought her addiction for many years. There were successes. Her life was not a failure although she never had the chances that many of us take for granted. There were people - men - in her life who should have watched out for her, taken care of her, been there for her. She had to take care of herself though and tried the best she could without ever feeling sorry for herself. She loved - and was loved - and will be dearly missed by so many, especially her sons Bobby and Corey and Corey's family - wife Annette and their children Allanna and Arrianna - granddaughters Desi and Rayleen. For those suffering this day from addiction, strength and peace to you. Remember Denise. Remember them all.
