    Dear Jim and Family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Debbie was a mentor for me and had a very large impact on my career and my growth as a person. Her perpetual smile, unique laugh, ability to give the best advice in the world and to always think about others, is what I remember most about Debbie. She was one of the the most loving, most kind people I had ever met. I cannot imagine how you are feeling, I wish I could do something for you, I will pray for you and your family.

    Love Corrine McIsaac (Nova Scotia)

  4. Gone to soon is a consummate professional with a zest for life that is contagious. I had the pleasure of working alongside Debbie for a period- I will always be reminded of her generosity and fun-loving spirit. Never a mountain too high to climb Debbie always had the instinct to overcome adversity and leave behind a road map for others to follow- if they dared to. She will be missed. May we all celebrate our fond memories of the one and only Debbie.

  9. Such a loss for the world! I cannot imagine your sorrow. I have been thinking of Deb with many many, many fond memories. Her vibrant enthusiasm, forthright approach, strength, and refusal to take the trivial too seriously helped to get me through nursing school. She never changed and I valued her friendship always.

  12. Debbie. Who can ever forget your beautiful face, infectious smile and laughter? I have lost a colleague, mentor, resource and never-failing pillar of support, because you were taken from this life prematurely.
    I’m telling your family how precious you were to those of us who worked in the wound care realm.
    Don’t forget to use Aquacel silver on those heavenly wounds!
    Guide us from afar.

  17. I had the distinct honor of working with Debbie over the last eight years. We put many miles on her car, chatting about our families and friends, travelling to teach wound care. Always ready with some deep knowledge and experience, I will always hear her saying “You should…” We shared many wonderful times talking about knitting, canning and gardening. I will treasure my memories of her for many years to come.
