Deepest sympathy to Debbie's family. She was a strong matriarch of your family and will be missed by all. Please remember that her strength was indicative of the deep love she felt for all of her family and the concern she had for each of you. I know there are no words that can make this tragic loss any better but, know that her love and presence will be with you for the rest of your lives. Her example of strength, hard work, and kindness would be the path she would want for each of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Frank and Dolly Gonzales
