To the Saunders/White family:

Please accept my sincerest condolences. I remember a conversation I had with Debbie many years ago, and how warm and down to earth she was. I was somewhat unaware of the length of her remarkable list of accomplishments. Your great family and her memory will be in my thoughts.
