My condolences to all the family. We had a lot of fun at Dickey's Prairie Home and at Walmart. She worked with both me and my mom. We had fun over the years! She will be missed!

sincere condolances to all of Deb's family. Many great memories of Sundays spent at the farm when we were kids. I remember having to practically pry your mom and ours apart when it came time to leave, despite having been together all day they still found more to talk about. every time we visited, except maybe once when it was really cold. I hope your memories of those days will help you cope with your loss.
