"Deb, you lit up my world and the world of everyone who knew you.  You had a spirit that shone brightly through your smile which reflected love, joy, caring and compassion. Your gentle nature and sweet disposition will always be remembered. You smiled, cracked jokes and made everyone laugh until the very end. You were so brave and full of grace and your optimism, even through the most difficult of times, prevented you from feeling sorry for yourself. You had great and wonderful friends, and that was no accident, my love. Your friends and the people you loved saw your tender heart and felt embraced by it. Your impish and mischievous ways brightened up whatever room you walked into. You are so loved, you will be missed dearly and your spirit will shine in us forever.  Yours always, Phyl"
