Maryannette and Dennis, I just read about the passing of your dear daughter, Deb, and was completely shocked. No parent ever thinks that their child will pass away before they do. I cannot imagine the grief that you are feeling. My deepest sympathy to you and the rest of your family. I will be thinking about you as you cope with your sorrow. Love, June Nestler

Deb and I worked together for several years and I will miss my friend. She was always upbeat and we enjoyed sharing memories of Hawaii. She came to see me after I had knee surgery and laughed the entire time she was here as my little dog was climbing all over her. That is how I will remember her: the laughing and the many hours we spent working together at Ephrata Hospital.
