Dear Jack and family, I was so sad to read about Debbie's passing. I loved working with her at Ellis Hospital. She was an excellent nurse and she made all of her patients feel special. She had a great sense of humor and loved her family with all of her heart. My heart goes out to you and your family.

Jack, My most sincere sympathy to you and your family, when Cindy and I visited with you in Maine a few years ago it was really special to have spent time with you and Deb. Deb was also so very caring and kind when she worked at Ellis Hospital, she treated all the Paramedics with extreme respect. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Richard and Cindy
