Gerry, Aaron (Katherine), Tyler, and Families. Please accept my condolences, in the passing of Debra, a great lady. I remember the growing years when Deb would drop the little ones off at Rod and Laura's on Forrest Drive, for some grandparent time (or relief).

My sincere condolences Gerry on the loss of Deb. You won’t know me but we were neighbors on Forrest Drive to the Letcher’s. Deb used to come swimming with our family many times at Champion Lake. She loved the water. Lots of good memories. Please pass on my sympathies to the rest of the family.
