I was shocked and so very saddened to recently learn about my childhood best friend. First, to Gifford, Ryan and Justin, my deepest condolences on the loss of your mother. There is no greater void in your lives. I first met Debi when she was six and I was five. She moved next door to us on Gardner St. We became fast friends and remained best friends until our marriages. We each had our "school best friends" but at home we were inseparable. Throughout elementary and high school years, we spent weekends and summers together: playing with Barbie dolls , cut-outs, and doll houses, playing restaurant and doctor and dress-up, and board games of Monopoly and Easy Money which lasted for many hours because "we could borrow money from the bank", spending hours in my pools and later her pool, eating lunch or dinner at each other's houses, playing kick ball and baseball just the two of us in our backyards, building snowmen, sledding in our backyards, going shopping together in downtown Plymouth and later Wilkes-Barre, going trick or treating always together, spending every Christmas morning at each other's houses, listening to music together especially the Beatles, walking to movies at the old Shawnee theater or walking to the library on Shawnee Avenue to get tons of books to read; sharing all kinds of secrets especially about boys, and doing things we shouldn't have like trying to start an outdoor grill with a full can of lighter fluid, taking her sister's undeveloped film and trying to develop it, booby trapping her backyard when we thought there was a thief in the neighborhood. I was her Maid of Honor at her wedding and a year later she was my Matron of Honor at my wedding. I could not think about my childhood without talking about Debi and all the fun times we shared. She was always a kind and loving person and to be a mother was her dream come true. And to Gifford, Ryan and Justin, pray to her because she is still there for you. Understanding Debi, I know that you three were the center of her life.

Sincere sympathies to you boys and all your families. I’ve known your mother since we were in Uncle Edward’s and Aunt Rita’s wedding when we were just little girls! Reconnected in high school of course. I am very shocked and saddened to hear this news. It is the saddest day when your mother leaves you. Also understand you recently lost your Dad too. My heart goes out to you all. Hope all of your memories sustain you thru this very difficult time. Again my condolences. May they both rest in peace in the Lord’s embrace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My Sincere sympathy to Giff,, Ryan and Justin at this difficult time for each of you as your Mom has passed into the Glory of Heavenly. May she be at rest in eternal Peace and May you be comforted by the loving memories you shared with your dear Mother over many years. I’m wondering if each of you might have been students at Dallas Elementary School in Dallas, PA ? I am a retired teacher from Dallas and I’m thinking I might have had 2 of you as students in 5th grade there. Blessings and Comfort to each of you. Sincerely, Kathleen Reiss Dallas, PA

Giff, Justin, Ryan, and Family, We are so very sorry on the passing of your Mom. I always loved running into her. She would always brag about her boys and grandchildren. She never got over the passing of her beloved sister, and knowing that they are now together, along with her Mom, Dad, and Terry, will hopefully bring you peace. Our love and prayers are with you all. Mary Pat and Paul Wiedlich
