My heart is broken. I haven't seen Debi since her illness, but that never mattered with us, we always could pick up where we left off; as if no time had passed. I still have cards she had sent to me over the years. She was always there for me, and Tom also. I can't believe I won't see her again. She was one of the best friends that anyone could ever have. She was selfless, given and loving and always there when you needed her. My sweet, wonderful friend I will miss you forever. My heartfelt sympathy to Tom, Traci and all her children and grandchildren.

My heart goes out to Tom, Trasie and all of Debbie’s family. I will always have fond memories of Debbie being like a mother to me and making me feel like part of the family. The countless family dinners and game nights will never be forgotten.
