  8. Deborah was, and still remains the most wonderful woman I have ever known.

    She was a great partner in our house flipping days, had quite an eye for decorating those homes, was an exceptional homemaker, cook, mother, friend and lover and I could go on for hours about just what a great and talented person Deb was and STILL is, but I won’t.

    Suffice it to say, that if you had ever gotten to know her, you would recognize here and now exactly what I am talking about. The world truly has lost one of the good ones.
