    I am so sorry to you all, as hard as it is, it’s a blessing that she’s no longer suffering and can now be with Wolf again. She was a very sweet caring woman and will be very missed.

  2. Irene Rempel says:

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Debbie was such a loving and kind person. She always had a smile for people. I met Debbie because I used to work with Wolf at Halcon. Along with Wolf she became a dear friend. I am relieved that she is not suffering anymore and so very happy that she is with her beloved husband Wolf. Thoughts and prayers are with Debbie’s friends and family.
