Debbie and family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I did not know Mr. Deeb but know that Debbie spoke so highly of him. Her words to describe him were, " the kindest, sweetest Daddy anyone could every have." I don't think any words could be better to describe anyone.

My deepest sympathies to the entire Deeb family. "Big Eddie" was such a positive role model during a very impressionable time of my life. I will alway remember him as a man of integrity and true friend of my family. May God's arms hold you during this time of sorrow.
