Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I just found out about Debbie's passing and wanted to extend my sincerest condolences to Amanda and the rest of the family. I am so sorry that we lost touch many years ago as our lives took different paths, but I would always remember her as a very special friend working at Ringer's Pharmacy and we took an accounting course at Red River in the evening. I will always remember her gentle and caring nature. I regret that I was unaware of Murray's passing at the time. May the wonderful memories of them both give you peace and strength at this very difficult time. They are together now and they will always be in your hearts. - Posted by: Marina Di Nella (Friend and previous co-worker) on: Oct 01, 2018

  • One of my fond memories from childhood, was when I was at her mom's place (visiting as we often did). As a younger cousin, I was so excited and felt special when she and her friends were "playing" and doing my hair... I thought it was so cool, that they did that... always had a special place for her in my heart... even though we haven't seen each other much in our adult life. Sending condolences and love to Amanda and Barry. Linda - Posted by: Linda Haddad (cousin) on: Sep 29, 2018

  • My dearest Deb.....became a special friend when I had the honour to reunite after many years had taken us in different directions. Deb was a very kind and compassionate human being! She will be missed but will remain to hold a spot in my heart. With love, fond memories and sorrow, Shelley - Posted by: Shelley Grahame (Friend) on: Sep 28, 2018

  • My heart is racing, tears are flowing. I had talked to her just a few months ago promising I would see her before the year is up. Wish she told me but she worried more about others emotions. Amanda know that you & your daughter where her world. Barry know that you have been the best brother anyone could have & her rock!! Sending prayers and all the angels to support you. With love!!! - Posted by: Darlene Skimming (Spray) (I don't know what to say but I loved her!) on: Sep 28, 2018
