The memories shared between Debbie and I are immeasurable. My childhood was wonderful because of her. From playing Volleyball at Morrell Playground to Badminton Marathons on Pennsylvania Avenue - she was always up for a good time. We rode bikes "with no hands" down Barron Avenue and skateboarded down Stackhouse Street. She was fearless. She was a leader. I was blessed to have known her and her family. I write all of this deeply saddened that the world has lost such a wonderful, caring and intelligent person - one we should all aspire to be like.
