I was so very sorry to learn of Debbie's passing, please accept my heartfelt condolences. Debbie was a good friend to me, she was always kind, thoughtful and caring. Whether we were playing a game in class or going to the movies I always enjoyed spending time with her. She sent me greetings on my birthday and to know that she took the time out to remember me shows what a wonderful person she was. I will miss her and always remember the very special, kind person she was.
