I worked with Deb at the hospital and really loved her. I haven't seen her for a couple years and am so shocked to see both she and her husband passed. She was such a warm, happy person and loved her family. I remember a specific conversation we had. It was winter time and very cold and blustery out. Neither one of us wanted to be at work on the weekend when our families were at home. She described what her living room looked like when she left. Everyone all snug and full after eating. I've never forgotten her telling me about it. Every time I'm home and warm in my living room, I think of that story. It was so Norman Rockwell. You could see the love for her family in those eyes and hear it in her voice.
