I was saddened to hear of Debbie's passing. Thinking of her brought back lots of good memories. It was my good fortune to develop a friendship with Debbie many years ago when my husband was overseas. We spent a fair amount of time together. I knew she was a nice person, but the better I got to know her, the more I grew to admire her. She looked at life through a different lens than most of the world. Her glass was never half empty. She had a fantastic sense of humor and a way of bringing out the best in people. The finest compliment I could ever hope to receive in life was spoken from her mouth and I have never forgotten it.

Life sent us in different directions then years later I got the chance to visit with her again thru a totally chanced meeting in Houston; I was driving out the drive-thru window of my bank and she had made a wrong turn and was driving toward me! When I recognized her, I jumped out and ran over to her car. She thought I was a nut job coming to get on her case! Ha! But the meeting enabled us to set some time to catch up and visit. She had graduated from Rice, married and started a family which she was so very proud of! Don't tell Debbie she couldn't do something!

I heard she moved back to Louisiana and promised myself I'd look her up one year when I go for Thanksgiving. For whatever reasons, that didn't happen and it is truly my loss.

She was quite a woman and a remarkable human being who left a profound and lasting footprint on my heart. I'm so happy she touched my life. God bless Debbie and her entire family.
