I met Deb several years ago, thru my friend and her niece, Crystal Grovdahl. I have known Deb to be a loyal friend and a loving mother and grandmother. She was an intelligent woman of deep convictions and compassion. I enjoyed and valued my friendship with Deb. Now, I wish I could turn back time, and be there for her in her time of need. She was a very special lady, and I miss her already.

I met Deb through a group called the Toto Principle. I got to know her as a compassionate human being, willing to provide me with friendship and encouragement. I only wish I could have done so much more of the same for her. I shall miss her tremendously. She was an inspiration, really got me through some tough times. She is and was always important. God bless her and the family she has left behind. May they know comfort and may memories of her strengths carry them through. It is those qualities from Deb I shall carry with me.
