    To all of Deb’s family,

    As many of you know, Deb and I were friends, the type of friends that are few and far between. We shared so many interests and had so much fun learning new things. Deb was so special; always thinking of others instead of herself. She was one of a kind and we are all lucky to have known her.

    Luv to you Deb, and condolences to you as her family.
