She was such a pleasant person, and I feel honored to have known her. She lived in my neighborhood in New York City, and I would see her often walking her Dalmatian, Dylan, while I was walking my two Dalmatians, Parker and Jezebel. She would always stop and chat about the dogs and everyday things. She was also very popular in the neighborhood. Many people knew her or knew of her. She will be missed.

When I think of Debbie I see her bright smile and a bubbly personality that made everyone feel special. I flew with Debbie at Eastern and we had great times in New York. She was so proud of Patrick and his career. She absolutely beamed when she spoke of him. She loved being a flight attendant. I think of her every day and I smile. She made the people she touched better, by knowing her. I am thankful for the memories.

I graduated from high school with Debbie. I was really shocked and saddened to hear that Debbie was one of the victims of this terrible tragedy. She will surely be missed by all who knew her throughout her lifetime. We had such good times together in high school and the years following. Debbie, I will surely miss you.
