    I am heartbroken by the loss of Debbie. In the few years that I have known her, she was an awesome friend. She showed me so many places in this area, one more magical than the other. She was such a beautiful person, inside and out. I know her spirit will live on in the hearts of her family and friends. I will listen for her voice in the whispers of the trees and the falling snow and rain. I will hear her laughter in the forest.
    I know she is now at peace and hope our souls will meet again. Fly high, Debbie! I love you so.
