 Debbie was my very closest friend, and we were really more like sisters than friends. She was always a mover and a shaker who got so much done in her lifetime. I was with her and her family when she died. I miss her so much!

 Debbie was on my mind a great deal during our reunion last weekend! She would have loved it and been right in the midst of planning it, if she had been given the chance. Debbie, you were missed!
