    I haven’t been back to Cooperstown much since graduation; but I remember so many good things about Debbie, from high school. She was always so energetic, fun, ready to be a friend, and especially, I remember that great contagious smile. My condolences certainly go to her family and friends; and in this sadness, it is a wonderful thing to be able to have no more pain.
