Sad over Debbie's untimely death. We were cousins, she having been born on my fifth birthday. As children we were blessed to be surrounded by the love of the large Nelson family. Now she is enjoying that wonderful reunion with our loved ones who have gone before. Glenda Hyman Carrell

My deepest condolences to Otis and Barry. Debbie and I were friends since kindergarten. We had lots of fun during our teenage years and as young adults and I'm fortunate that we stayed in touch. I was also fortunate to be able to spend three days with her during her last week of life. We talked and reminisced during this time, and I learned that she was not afraid of death. Her only concern was her family's welfare. RIP my BFF. Love you forever.
