Bob and family, so sorry to hear about Debbie. Will
Keep you in our prayers. Debbie was a strong person
and a great sense of humor. I’m sure if the Cardinals don’t

Dear Robert & Family,
We are so VERY sorry for your loss of our good friend, and your love one, Debbie. Francis One won't be the same without her smiling face and funny personality. We missed you this past season and were sure hoping for you to be here next winter. But GOD had different plans and called Debbie home. We are in our thoughts and prayers.

We barely know what to say, so here it is. Deb was the most upbeat happy person we ever knew. Her devotion to Robert, the girls and the grandkids was exceptional. Who can forget her love for the Cardinals? Especially when they whipped the Red Sox!! Deb, you were a sweetheart and a good friend, we will miss you beyond measure. R.I.P. dear lady.

So sorry to hear of Debbie's passing, she was such a sweet and courageous person, not to mention that sense of humor. Throughout her battle we never once heard her complain. I'm sure she will be missed by many, especially in our little Francis 1 Community in Florida. Sincere condolences Bob & family.

Bob, so very sorry to hear that you lost your Deb. I can almost see her still sitting over there on your porch, smiling & laughing. She had given me a small potted plant to take care of for her until she could come back down. Yesterday I planted it in the ground.
