    Al, Jen, Ayla, and Ella…I am so sorry to hear of Deb’s passing. Sure wish that I was closer, I would be there for you in a flash. Be it with a meal, or better yet to play with the girls so you could have some adult time if needed. Once again, I am so sorry to hear the sad news. Just remember that Deb has no more pain and that she is in a better place. Sharing in your family’s sorrow and offering all our deepest sympathy.

    Denise was such a sweet person and had such a warm persona about herself. Anytime you would see her, she would have a smile and was just so friendly and always had a care in the world. I will miss her. Donna Karels-Higgins
