    Debbie and I met years ago at a school event. She was a good friend who could always be depended on. She would listen to me endlessly go on about some drama in my life. She would often laugh when I called, probably due to the fact that she already knew I had a new issue to throw at her. She never judged me, no matter what. She was truly a friend, which is rare in the world today. She will be missed more than she knows.

    I can’t believe she is gone…. she was so full of life, had a contagious laugh, and had such a great sense of humor. She loved her family so much and she was a true, loyal friend. I am already missing her so much. I know she is with Greg in Heaven and is free of all pain now. Rest well, my precious friend. Thank you for the gift of your friendship. Until we meet again…. Love, Renee’

    My dear Debbie,

    You made the lives of whoever you met more beautiful and brighter in many ways  With your charisma, sense of humor, and joy.  It was a pleasure to be part of your shenanigans, and surprises for our good friend Jerry. We wish to talk with you having a delicious dinner, laughing and shouting during a baseball game with friends and family that we consider mine one more time with you. We needed a lot more time to make memories like the ones Miranda has with you. We may not have photos with you laughing and enjoying your time captured in a photo, but we will forever have them in our hearts and minds. It was wonderful to coincide in this lifetime with you, and I hope that we will be reborn again and be friends once more in the next life, my lovely Debbie. From the sky you will continue to brighten our hearts with the memories you have left us. We hope for you to be laughing and enjoying your time in the next life full of love and passion where you live a long life. We may not know where fate is leading us all ,but I hope we end up where we feel at ease and happy where we can all meet again enjoying time together.

    Our deepest condolences,

    ~The Flores Family~

    Debbie was such a good friend to me. My condolences go out to her family during this difficult time. She was such a genuine person, someone you could go to for the best advice ever or just if you needed a good laugh. It’s been a long time since I got to see Debbie, we used to work together but in the last year we got to chat and catch up a bit, she has always been a sweet person to me and I’m glad I got to know her. She will be missed. I’m so sorry to hear this and my prayers are with her family.
