Dear Peter and Family, my workstation was by Debby’s at the Region of Waterloo. I was saddened to hear of Debby’s passing. We used to laugh how she had to stamp those invoices and that it was so noisy and loud. Debby always had family photos up. I always looked forward to hearing about the stories from her nephews, including Karolina and Sienna. My deepest sympathies for your loss.

To Peter and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. When I first laid eyes on Deb (in the same room that was shared with my mom at GRH) I was instantly drawn to her.
She had the most beautiful eyes I’d ever seen and her spirit was overwhelming. I have been thinking of Deb every day since we met and miss her very much. My heart goes out to you Peter and your family. God bless, Sincerely Karen and my mom Ruth
