Like the old saying goes - Is the glass half empty or half full?
It really saddens me that the glass was still half empty:
We had many missed opportunities, to make and cherish new memories that never happened.
I'm deeply thankful and blessed, of the memories we did have and shared...... I will always cherish them deeply in my heart.
I'm so glad you were part of my life, you will be forever in my heart.
Until we meet again and fill up that glass with memories - and ask
God for a FREE refill.
Debbie - I will always love you...... Love Santo Patinella

God truly blessed me when he made you my Big sister, Debbie. I will treasure all the memories we made together. As child, when you use to walk me to school. As an adult when you walked down the isle with me as my Maid of Honor. As older adults as we walked together to say our last goodbyes to our Dad. And when my times comes I will look for you, so we can walk together in heaven. I will miss you Debbie, until we meet again. I love you.
Your Little Sister,

Debbie, you will be so missed by residents and coworkers. You gave of yourself and touched so many. I loved how to ease tension during work we would talk about Jason Momoa. Leaving both our spirits lifted and a little bit happier. May your spirit fly higher and higher in great joy! With a loving heart, Angel
