Condolence & Memory Journal

Mom, I still check on your memories quite often and realize everytime how great of a person you were. I'm very happy I had a chance to receive your love as your son. I just wish, you could still be enjoying my family and our love. But one day I'll see you in heaven where perfect bliss is what you enjoy now. Love you always Mom.

Aunt Debbie, Thank you for being the best aunt and best role model. After hearing others tell their stories about you and me remembering the memories I had of you, words can't describe how it felt to have someone like you in my family. I am going to miss you so much but I promise to make you proud and promise to do better in all ways

So many great memories I have after being friends for 20 years. My older sons played baseball and football with both Adam and Jimmy. My 21 year old son was lucky enough to have Debbie as his 6th grade ccd teacher. He never complained about going cause she threw candy out for correct answers!. The best was the male stripper at a january Bingo party for my birthday. Leave it to debbie! Always thinking of other people. Joan I will keep in touch. Love to the whole family.

Heaven recieved another angel on Tuesday.Even though she was not a relative my son called her Aunt Debbie.No matter who you were she made you feel special and what you said was important to her. She was the strong oak in her family on which Roz and Sharon always leaned. Joanie and Aaron's best friend and traveling companion. My Richard's fiesty sister.She was extremely proud of her children and loved her grandkids compeletly. Family meant everything to her and you knew this five minutes after you met her.Hold her memory close to your heart and always smile when you think of her.

I worked with Debbie at Ancora Hospital. Debbie was the most compassionate and caring person I'd ever met. She had an open-book policy and was easy to talk to. Her famous words were "come talk to me". She would be deeply missed at Ancora, especially in Cedar Hall. My deepest sympathy to her beloved sons and her entire family.

Debbie was a good friend to me for 26 years. She had a heart of GOLD. When God made her He had many special interests in mind. She was always a very giving person. I don't just mean money, I mean a special way of talking to you to make you feel better. "Girlfriend you can do it because we are strong". You could always count on Debbie, she was a woman of her word. She will be missed at Ancora by myself and many of her co-workers. She was a hard working person who always gave everything her best. My thoughts and prayers go out to Debbie and her family who were very blessed to have Debbie in their lives. I will always have pleasant memories of Debbie and the good times we had together. God Bless.

God bless you all. Sometimes there are no words to say. This is one of those occassions. No one person can say magical words to make you feel better. Therefore, my prayers are with you all. Adam, her son, is my best friend. I know that she was proud of her children. She was a great example of a mother. Her and my mom also knew each other, and they would talk often. My mom and family also offers their condolences. Know that many are praying for you and your family from mine. I will always remember her as a wonderful and proud mother. I only saw good things from her. God bless your family.

Hello Aunt Joan (and cousins), I'm so, so sorry to hear of the news of Debbie's passing. She will be sadly missed, but it is comforting to know that she is now at home with Uncle Bob in Heaven, and her pain and suffering is now finally over.
