Our Aunt Debbie will forever be missed! She was so tough and always tried to find the humor in things even through all the trying obstacles she faced. My most favorite memories are spending family time together and sitting around Grandmas dining room table playing cards, those times were filled with so much love and laughter. She was truly one of a kind and heaven sure is lucky to have her!
Aunt Debbie, I’m sure Grandpa was so happy to see you again! Tell him we love and miss him and I know you are both looking over us all. We love and miss you so much.
