    So sorry for your family s loss. I’ve known Debbie for good part of my life but I really got to know her best when we worked together for ten years. Debbie taught me that how to turn the the most grueling task in to a fun filled adventure! This woman could absolutely find the comedy in every situation. She also had a deep compassion for all animals which in turn had great influence on me. Debbie loved her family and always put other s above herself. Rest In Peace Debbie.
