Dear Debbie:. You were the essence of love, kindness and patience. If there was ever a time and they were many of them that we needed your words, your comfort and your hugs, you were always there. You brought a beautiful free spirit as you entered the room always wanting to go spread your beautiful wings affecting so many people. Whether by car by boat by plane we traveled so many places and had so many plans.. I'll never forget how you got us on the jet at the first Suitcase Party in 2013...you said we were going to win well we didn't necessarily win but with your magic you made it happen just one of the many examples how your determination and dedication and fun personality took you so many places with so many friends. Do know that I will continue traveling and you will be with me in spirit until we meet again Sweet Debra I love you Forever in my heart. 💓💓

Love and sadness are in my heart when I reflect on Debra. I miss her, and I cherish the times we shared. Her smile, kindheartedness, and compassion for others were most notable, as well as her humility and loyalty. God's Peace, Debra.
