  1. I’m so sorry Deb prayers and love for you and your family. ❤️

  3. I am so sorry to hear of your loss, your mom was a special lady ❤️

  4. Grandma was loved by all. I have never met a person who didn’t immediately love Grandma. I have so many good memories of visiting Grandma and Papa in Camarillo and sitting with Grandma at the bar at the bowling alley, and picking out live crab to cook for Mom. Helping Grandma and Papa move up north and spending dozens of nights while Grandma played old country music and cooked us hotdogs and rice. How Grandma would take out as many extra pillows and blankets for us and wouldn’t leave our side until she was sure we were all asleep. Grandma making sure Lisa and I have matching sweaters or pajama sets every Christmas. And Grandma always, always made sure that I got exactly what I wanted for my birthday because she knew I would never give her a straight answer about what I wanted. And so, so many more. All of which I will hold in my heart and keep them close to me. Grandma wasn’t just a friendly face, but a Grandma to everybody. Everyone who met her, called her Grandma, and everyone who introduced her, introduced her as Grandma. Grandma has a special place in everybody’s heart and will continue to be loved and missed by all.

  5. Oh, Deb… I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you lots of love.

  6. My deepest condolences to you Deb and your entire family over your recent loss. Thinking of you all.
