    How do you begin to say goodbye to a true friend of almost 40 years, How can I imagine that her voice, her smile, her laughter, her gestures now remains embedded in my mind and in my heart, how, how can I say one more time, I love you Deb. You were my first friend I made in this country, you always made me feel special, I hope I did the same for you, we work hard, we shopped like crazy, while you traveled and saw the world, I kept shopping for both of us, we laugh, we cried, we eat too many pastelitos, thru thick and thin we always had each others back, we had lots of fun then came our children, nieces and nephews love then to the sky and back. Kaitlin the love and string to your heart and soul has grown up to be a wonderful young lady, just as you dreamed she would be and now a mom of your grandson. You did great Deb, she will be a wonderful mom, just like you were. You gave so much to all who knew you, your early departure has left an unfilled void in our lives, I pray that the Lord gives Kaitlin, Linda, Andrew, Kelly, Eddie and your family and friends thru the love and understanding that you always gave, the strength and guidance to help them thru this unimaginable loss. Rest in peace my friend, I will always love and miss you. Till we meet again God is with you Till we meet again.

Send your condolences.
