  1. Larry, and family,

    May you find comfort in the knowing that Deb is at peace.

    Hugs to all of you,

    So many memories I have with Deb. Since the age of 11 we have been friends…43 years of talking, crying,and laughing…oh, how I will miss you.

    Three little words, “Forget me not”
    Don’t seem much but mean a lot.
    Just a memory fond and true
    To show, dear friend, I think of you.

    RIP dearest friend.

    Dear William, Matthew, and Linda Louise,

    I went to high school with your mom, and we were part of the same gang of happy crazy teenaged friends. Deb was such an important part of our lives, and I have often remembered her smiling face, up there on the dance floor, long hair swaying. She has taken much away with her, but also left so much behind. Because I’m sure you have the best of her inside of yourselves, making all three of you very special indeed.

    My prayers are with you all, and with your Dad. Till we meet again, Debbie.

    Michael Donovan
