  5. Many fond memories of Deb at Park school and at her home. I remember when she first became ill and was in the hospital-we as her classmates all were so worried about her! It was a happy day when she was discharged and able to come back to school. Deb had a wonderful smile and was lots of fun,

  7. Deb was like the sister I never had while growing up. We lived close to each other, spent nights at each others house, camped together, & had birthdays a day apart. Our families were close as kids. She fought a strong battle with RA. Sometimes I don’t know how she did it. Love her & will miss her. Cathy Wordelman

    • Words cannot convey how much we will miss her. She was the strongest person I’ve ever known and one of the best friends I will ever have.
      We have years of wonderful memories with Deb and Dick.
