I will always remember Debbie and all her antics. From seventh grade and us liking the same boy, through getting married, Debbie moving off, having children and raising our families, we stayed friends. So many things big and small shared over the fifty - seven years we were friends. I will miss her calls, her visits to Texas and going us going out to eat, our just hanging out and talking, how hard she worked, and how much she loved all her girls. When I think of Debbie, seventh grade at field day always comes to mind. Her bright smiling face, blue eyes and dimples. Right there in my mind forever. Debbie, Liz, Carol and I were the girls. I miss her so much already. RIP dear friend.

Love and prayers to Shonda, Kim and families, Paula and Marilyn. May God give you peace and healing.

Aunt Debbie I loved that you said what you thought. you were so much fun. I remember coming to see you the first time as an adult on my first adult road trip. You made me feel so loved and welcome.

I remember the first time I met Aunt Debbie. We came to grandma's house in Greencastle and there was a family dinner. She was wearing a mini skirt and white gogo boots. I thought she was from a tv show because in those days I had only seen ladies on tv wear them. I was a little star struck and too shy to speak to her. I will always remember and love my "famous" aunt!
