Very sorry to hear. I met Debbie while I was in high school when she visited from Nebraska with her family in Newburyport . I was inspired by her strength, motivation and family values. May She Rest In Peace

I remember the first time we spent time together, we came overnight to your home in Rome, NY. Sue & I for the weekend. Then always meeting at holidays and cookouts at Sue's. I will certainly miss sitting and talking to you. Good times are always remembered
