Our sympathies to Debbie's family and friends, and to everyone who loved her. We will miss her very much. As her niece, I will remember her beautiful smile. She was gentle and kind. When I spoke to her, she listened as if it were as important to her as it was to me. I love you, Aunt Debbie. I will look forward to the day that our family might be back together .......
