It's been far too many years, but I remember her well as sweet and fun.  Larry, my thoughts and sympathy are with you and your family.

We will miss you Debby!  Always fun and keeping her spirits up.  She never wanted to talk about her condition or pain.  She attended each reunion and was always available if you called her to have lunch.  Just a really fun and sweet person.  We will miss you, Debby!  Wishing strength and peace to Beccy and Larry.

Debby was my high school pal, college roommate and friend for life.  We had good times and sad times, but more laughter than tears, I am glad to say, and yes, a few 99-cent beers.   We are pretty sure that was the six-pack price in 1971.  Bruce said it best, “We are all better for having known her.”  Those words are so true.  We will miss her bright smile, clear blue eyes and quick wit, but more than that, we will miss her spirit and friendship.  She never gave up on friends or relationships in situations where some of us—OK, most of us, would have.  She even forgave me for making her stay up all night to study for a pass-fail exam.  Her courage during her illness was nothing less than extraordinary.  In her memory, I will try to be a better friend and family member to all the people that I am fortunate to have in my life and hope you will do the same.  My love and prayers go out to all her family members and close friends whose hearts are heavy.  Rest in peace, sweet friend.

I think the closer you are, the more difficult to write.  Have not been able to attempt until now. Quite a number from our class of '69, several from class of '70 along with many other people were at Debby’s service this beautiful afternoon in downtown Fort Worth.  It has been several days since Deb’s passing and finally today we could say our good-by, feel some release and have a measure of closure.


Afterward, rather than sticking with friends, Dale and I went alone to a favorite place and drank a glass of wine to Debby.  As we sat there fighting tears & thinking about times with Deb, we could hear music. “Cause I got a peaceful, easy feeling” (thank you Eagles) and it seemed so right. I do have a peaceful, easy feeling now.  Debby is at peace.  She is resting easy. No worries about test results, no exhaustion from treatment. No pain. No tears in heaven.  


I am grateful Debby was my friend.  A strong, loving, kind, generous, funny friend.  Most special memories will be of the annual Mardi Gras parties at her house.  Even when quite ill, she enjoyed having friends over for that party. Great food and laughs.  Gracious hostess Debby.  Also, meeting Debby and Larry on many Saturday evenings at La Choza’s (and a few other places) for guacamole and green chile stew. 


Then there was our love for Santa Fe’s, Cafe Pasqual’s. Deb gave me a great, colorful framed print from there reflecting the spirit of San Pasqual, patron saint of the kitchen.  It hangs where I see it daily and will forever remind me of her. Deb loved to create in the kitchen and was a member of Bon Appetit in Fort Worth for many years.


Funny we were not friends in school, only in the last fifteen years did we get to know each other.


I can hear her voice and her contagious laugh.  I can imagine the times I enjoyed sharing a glass of wine and conversation with my precous friend.  I am so glad to have known you, Deb, and I miss your gentle spirit. Now I need to let you go………


"But this voice keeps whispering in my other ear

Tells me I may never see you again..."  


[thank you for letting me share these thoughts]
