    Debbie and I attended the same church and were confirmed in the Lutheran faith when we were in 8th grade on April 8, 1979. She was a star basketball player also at St. Paul's Lutheran school. We found each other again on classmates.com in 2002 and I had hoped to travel to N. Carolina to visit Debbie possibly this year. I am so sorry now I did not get to see her again but I was able to help her locate some of our other classmates from St. Paul including a couple of our teachers and share some old photos and memories from our youth. Debbie you in the Lord's house now, and I know we'll meet again! My condolences to the family and wish them all God's richest blessings today and always.

    I was new at St. Paul. I had never been to a private school before. Debbie made me feel welcomed and included me in activities (most). I was terrible at basketball and Deb was very competitive but instead of making me feel left out, she said, "we need someone cheering really loud!" I am so sorry for your loss.

    I'm so thankful to have reconnected with Deb. I had hope to visit her this summer and this summer I will definitely make time to visit Beast Craft BBQ and toast to you Deb! Until we meet again, RIP, my friend.
