Debby, I was visiting my mom last year at Providence, and your mom came over and sat with us....I asked her if she had a daughter named "Debby", and she said "yes".....I told her I went to school with you, and started sharing my memories of visiting your house for a sleep over......I told her that I remember you living in a white house, near Letterkenny.....she shook her head, and I felt like she was remembering the past..... I'm sorry for your loss..... Clare Elder
