Aunt Debi was always a part of my life. She was there for every holiday and event she was invited to. She's been such an integral part of my life that I was in high school before it dawned on me that we weren't actually related by blood. She was closer to me than a lot of the family I am related to ever was. She never failed to make me laugh. I'll miss her every day, not just because of who she was to me, but because of who she was to all of my little family.
