|Let the memory of Debbie be with us forever|
"I was telling my friend about Debbie last week, about how kind she was and an inspiration to me to follow in her ways."
"Deb was a good friend and a beautiful person, inside and out. She will always be missed."
"I recently wanted to look up my high school dear friend Deb Canino. Deb, Anne Hiller and I were 3 very good friends throughout high school. We were the outsiders, not the cheerleaders and for a few years did everything together. I just learned of Deb's death in trying to reconnect with her. I am heartbroken. Deb was always cheerful, always positive and a light in the darkness. I was her bridesmaid a hundred years ago. I am so sorry to hear about her death. She was a very special person and I haven't has such a good friend in the 40 years since I knew her. I will miss her forever."
"Deb, It just doesn't seem like it's been a year already. Still miss your sweet smile and caring heart. The world lost a beautiful person when you left us but I know you are among God's angels now and will be eternally at peace. You will always hold a special place in my heart. Love you & will miss you always. Aunt Paula"
"Truly Debbie and Ted are lights in my life. Never a harsh word or even an impatient moment, with all they were dealing with. I love them both and will always miss the chemistry that they create. Loving people with so much positive energy. Now one is gone and I miss her like my own sister. I wish only the very best for Ted, as he finds his new path."
"Now that our sweet Debbie is gone, who will speak for the trees?
With love, Susan"
"Dear Ted and Family, I am so sorry to learn of your loss. It feels as Debbie was much too young; too good to be gone. Working with her at the LUEP Department at Stanford was always a pleasure. I appreciated the care and attention that she brought to everything she did. She will be missed. Therese Brekke"
"Debbie was always friendly, kind, and supportive. Working with her was a pleasure, and I will miss her. I share the sadness of her passing with Ted and all the LBRE family.
"There are some people who always bring a smile to our faces when we think of them. Deb was one of them and she will be missed but always remembered. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ted and families.
"Dear Ted and Debbie's family, though I've been away for too-long a period from my close Stanford colleagues, I've not been out-of-thought with all we accomplished together in terms of caring for the natural environment for future generations of students, faculty, staff and local community. Debbie was a leader in helping us foster our campus, including saving numerous aged oaks and planting many new ones in reminding us of our campus and regional heritage.
However, even more importantly, she was there daily in our office to remind all of us of how we should respect our interactions with one another with dignity and caring.
May her presence continue to effect us all,
I miss you and your smile. The Stanford Canopy, always inspiring, will now mean even more to me. Peace.
There is a space missing from my heart that you will carry forever my friend. From you I have learned about strength that I shall never possess, an understanding that stepping back may achieve a more restful perspective and that a quiet force is withstanding. As I mentioned to you not long ago, I will do everything I can to help continue with your vision to save the trees of Stanford and help them to flourish in their new locations to best of my ability. The tree legacy that you were so passionately diligent to care for, from beginning to end, is just a mere reflection of your love and compassion. It surrounds me daily. I miss you.
I miss your kind spirit and gentle heart.
"My heart goes out to Ted, and to Debbie's family. A light has gone out in the world -- Debbie's kindness and sweet spirit will be missed by many. May the love and beauty that she leaves behind comfort you and provide peace.
"I am so glad to have known you. Your memory and kindness will be forever appreciated. I will miss your lovely smile and your kind spirit.
We planted many tree's together, i will continue moving & planting tree's and know that you will be right there with me making sure it's right. I will never forget you. We will move tree's again together. Love Jess and Cathy Ponce. Rest in Peace, We will all miss you."
I loved getting the chance to work with you over the years beautifying the campus. Remembering you with great fondness. Our thoughts are with Ted.
Julie Muir and PSSI Family"
"Sweet Debbie, May the light guide you always, may your light shine upon us...you touched me, and the world --your radiant smile and beautiful eyes will be imprinted in the tapestry of all the friendships you inspired. You will be in all the flowers around and Ted will be always surrounded by you.

"Deb was always a pleasure to work with and the University will lose a wonderful asset and a talented landscape architect. She was always good for a smile and a good word. She will be missed. My thoughts go out to Ted and family.

"May thanks to Debbie-- I called her the tree lady and she called me the bike lady. Now, every time I see a tree I think of her. She helped me save a neighborhood tree they wanted to cut down by telling me how much carbon would be released if they did it! A very special person who loved her work. Debbie, I miss your smile and sharing dog stories with you.
Your smile, your kindness, your lending hand and your positive outlook in life will always be in my heart.
Thank you for your friendship.
