My deepest condolences to all members of Deborah´s family. I too have lost loved ones to this devastating disease that numbs the heart and seizes the mind of all those close to the afflicted. I´ve recently befriended Dave and wanted to express how sorry I am for your loss. Dave, you and your loved ones are in my thoughts and I solemnly pray that you all find peace.
