Deb was a wonderful happy person. I've known her for many years and feel very priveleged to have helped care for her in her final days at Season's Hospice. She never lost her sense of humor and she made it easy to be around her despite her devastating illness. She holds a special place in my heart. I know her legacy will live on in her children and grandchildren. I hope we can celebrate her life and not grieve her death. That is how she would want it.
