    I just found out this morning that Deb had passed away. My heart goes out to all of you. Deb and I became friends when she worked for me at US Bank. She was one of the best employees I ever hired. She was also a wonderful caring person. I would run into her shopping after she left the bank and always thought about the good times we had working togther. She talked about you Angeline alot and loved you so much. My thoughts are with you and your family. I will miss her and wish I had known earlier so I could have been with you family at her services.

    Dear YaYa and Family,
    You are in my thoughts and prayers. I am going to miss seeing Debbie at the deli. It was always very special to see her smiling face.
    My grandmother used to say that just because a ship has sailed beyond the horizon and we can no longer see the ship, it does not mean the ship is gone. It has only gone from our sight.
    With deepest sympathy, Nancy

    Angie, no daughter loved her mother more than Deb loved you. Over the years that we worked together I heard many loving stories about you, and felt her concern when you were ill.
    I have cried many tears these past few days and wish I could be there to attend the services and give you a hug. When I return to work in a couple weeks it will break my heart to walk past her desk.
    Last July when Joe first became ill, and Deb was already fighting her illness, we agreed that on New Years Eve we would get together and toast “Good Riddance to the worst year of our lives!” Now I guess I will raise a glass alone to Deb’s spirit. She was a wonderful friend.

    Our love and prayers to all of you. We were next door neighbors to Angie and family for several years – and were so thankful to be considered part of your family. Deb was like a sister to us and we loved her dearly. Our sympathy to all of you.

    My thoughts and prayers to the Nicoloff Family. I got to know Deborah and her Mother being a checker at Hornbachers. What absolutely lovely people you are. Praying for you all.

    Deb was a delightful person to work with, and I had the distinct pleasure of being able to call her my friend. With this friendship, I knew that I would never be out of her thoughts for very long, and she would never be out of mine. Her loyalty and wonderfully cynical sense of humor will be missed by all. Rest well, dear….XOXO
