I remember Debbie as very kind to my family. She always welcomed my family with open arms when we would come to visit. I was able to share my first grandsons first, second and third birthday with her. I will remember the many times we had lunch at the tea rooms around the area. I always looked forward to seeing her. My regret is I didnt visit her sooner. She will surely be missed
