Guestbook

  1. Thinking of all of the times we sat at my parents’ kitchen table talking politics, drinking lots of wine and having some great laughs. You will always be remembered for starting the “white elephant” gift exchange at Christmas which became a fun tradition for many years. You will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathies. Jane Berzan

  2. I have so many wonderful memories of being with Debbie. She was so creative and talented – I wish more people would have seen what she was able to do. Debbie loved learning and discussing things. I was so proud of her taking the adult education classes after she retired. And she was “THE SOURCE” to go to when you had any question at all about the old classic movies. I already miss her terribly. Deb – I’m so glad you are free of pain, and I will always love you.
