My beautiful sister is now resting in peace. What a fight you gave! And you had the best caregiver in the world, Bob. What a team! How I admired your strength and courage. Generous, caring, loving person gone to quickly. I promise to do the "little" jobs you gave me. And I promise to hold you within my heart forever. And I thank you for everything! I love you and will miss you so much.

We are heartbroken at the news of Debbie’s passing. Our deepest condolences to Bob, the love of her life, and her beloved family.
The two short years we were privileged to know and love Debbie, and her family, have been such a gift to me and my wife. She opened her arms and heart to a brother and sister-in-law she never knew she had, as did the entire family. Debbie’s love for her family was evident from the first time we spoke. She loved talking about her children and her precious grandchildren. Debbie was such a giving person and had a great sense of humor. I will cherish forever the precious time we spent together.
It gives us great comfort to know Debbie had a such a wonderful, loving husband in Bob, such a close, caring sister and brother-in-law in Mary and Wayne, children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends who adored her. In the all too short time we knew her, we adored her too.
We’re going to miss you, Debbie.
Love from your little brother and sister-in-law,
Edgar and Christy MacWilliam
