Best friend ever! We had so much fun, laughter, seriousness, and cries as we spent so much time together in the past! Thru our fun times her and David introduced me to my wonderful husband of 39 years. I will miss her so much, she is so happy now getting to see her son and husband, and Dad again! Fly high Debbie, wings look great on you!!!! Until we see each other again, I love you , your friend for ever, Kathy Joseph
