We've lost a very sweet and nice lady. I've known Debbie since she was a child, and I always felt that she tried to make life better for everyone she knew. I last saw her a couple months ago in the grocery store, but was unaware that she was ill. I now wish I would have spent more time talking to her. My sincere condolences to Joyce and Kathe and to the rest of her family. May your pleasant memories of Debbie get you through this.
