Gerald, Sue & Harry, and the rest of the family. I just now learned of Debbie's homegoing. I am so very sorry. Please know I love you and am praying for you as you go through these very sad and hard days. Even though I haven't seen her, or any of you really, in recent years, I always felt comfortable around Debbie. Coming into the Hullinger clan many years ago could be a bit frightening (LOL), but I always tried to find a spot next to Debbie - I was comfortable with her. Anyway, just wanted to send this note and let you know how sorry I am for your great loss.

To Gerald and all your family, We are so sorry for Deb's passing. She was a wonderful person and inspired many students through the years. I always appreciated her friendship, especially when we were in high school. She never seemed to have "favorites" but was just friendly with all. You have some beautiful memories to lean upon and please know we are keeping you and your family in prayer.

Please accept my deepest condolences for your recent loss. I was shocked to learn of her death. I don’t think I have ever known a kinder or gentler person than Deb. Her life was a gift to all those who were lucky enough to know her. She will be greatly missed. I cannot imagine your grief because I know your family was so close. She will forever be a wonderful Sorority Sister.
