    This woman was one of the most remarkable people on this earth. I will personally never forget the good times this loving woman gave to her family and friends.

    I will always remember deb smiling no matter what. She was so much fun during the Sunday pool league at the post. She couldn’t play pool but Debbie defense always made sure the other person didn’t have a shot. And only deb could fall in the water during miniature golf, come back to the post, dry her clothes and wear a garbage bag while she was waiting. She will be missed.

    I love you Deb. I feel like your with me today because you knew how hard today is as it is every year for me. I love you for all your hugs and love you gave me over the years. You were a remarkable woman. Let Gino know how much his sister misses him. I know he was there with open arms for you. ❤️
