    My Deepest Sympathies to Joe & his complete family, I was so saddened to get the news that Debbie had passed away. We went to school together, she graduated in 1969 & I graduated in 1968. Debbie always had such a beautiful smile & a wonderful personality to go with that smile. The heavens definitely gained a beautiful angel in Debbie. Most definitely.
    My thoughts & prayers are with you, Joe & your family. May the beautiful memories that you share with Debbie be etched into your hearts forever. So sorry for your loss.
