It still seems impossible to me that someone so full of life, someone with such a big personality can be gone.  I'm saddened by how much all of us who knew and loved her have lost, but I can't think of Debbie without smiling.  She was one of the funniest and most fun-loving people I've known.  What a pleasure it was to work with her!  I think she must be another angel around the throne...and is already telling them how they can do angel stuff more efficiently.  My thoughts and prayers are with Debbie's family and friends.  We should all have much to smile about as we celebrate what a wonder she was.
