    Dearest Aunt Erna, Blaine, Josh, & Jamie,
    My heart is heavy with sadness with Debbie’s passing, but I believe she is now free of all pain. I will miss my “Fargo Forum” reporter! We had many, many laughs in our phone conversations and I will miss those. Debbie had a big, kind heart and loved all of you very much.
    Rest in peace, dear Debbie.

    The Dalles OregonOur thoughts and prayers are for you Aunt Erna and for her children. I know this is a challenging time but we are happy for you being able to spend the time you had with her. The last time I talked to Debbie she was so proud and tickled that she and her friend could help decorate your room for Christmas. She loved you so much.

    Our friend went to sleep in her recliner, and decided not to wake up. We will miss her. Deb and Carol enjoyed their time together, going shopping, for lunch, to the hairdresser, and Deb’s favorite “The Dentist”. Rest in peace Deb.
