Debbie suffered for so long with her illness. She tried really hard to continue living. I admired her so much. She was always pleasant and never complained. Rest in peace. Joan Boylan

My prayers go out to the family of Debbie ❤️🙏❤️ And loosing a classmate is always so heart felt. A couple of years ago at work one night , Debbie called and we talked at length about past, present and future things. I will always remember that call of sharing with Debbie.

Prayers for all of the family in your loss. It's hard to lose classmates too. So glad Debbie and I got to spend some time together recently thanks to having a class reunion. While she didn't get to attend, we did get to reconnect because of it. Thankful for that last visit and phone calls. Rest in peace, my friend. You will be missed.
