Dear Tom, Jody, and Family,
My sympathy and prayers are with you all. I have always remembered Debbie for her kindness and friendship to me while I worked at Boscovs. She made me feel welcome from my very first day on the job and part of the "family." She was one of the happiest and most pleasant people I have known in my life. Her wonderful sense of humor made my day. Debbie was always willing to lend a hand to someone in need and helped me in some difficult personal times. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you all and help you in your sadness and loss of one so dear.
