Deb and family,
When I think of your mom, I think of her big, bright smile. Her kindness and jovial personality will never be forgotten. I feel fortunate to have known a little bit of her. I feel even more fortunate to know one of the legends she passed herself onto, you, Deb! With a heart full of tears for you all, my sincerest thoughts are with you. You are loved.
