As a favor to a friend, I took you under my wing when you first came to Hammacher. You became one of my close friends and I care for you deeply. You will not imagine how much I am going to miss you. The last time we actualy spent time together was when we took a trip to KY for the funeral of another treasured Hammacher family member. Hammacher has lost a loving and caring person. I thank Patty for bringing you into my life. I know you are in heaven because you going to be the ultimate angel. When you are riding the wing of a butterfly, come see me sometime. Be at peace!

Debbie, you will be missed greatly at work. You was wonderful co worker and has been a pleasure getting to know you over the years. Happy to say my last encounter with you was a good one as you was laughing as you told me a funny story. That is great memory to have of you. RIP
