Debbie and I met in high school in the early ’70’s and soon afterward we married and enjoyed the next 44 years together raising our 2 children. Known as “Mimi” by our three granddaughters, she relished being their grandmother. Debbie built a career as a medical practice manager and was nationally known and respected in her field. She was diagnosed in 2017 but bravely faced multiple surgeries and treatments for many years past everyone’s expectations. She continued to love her family, dogs and life as we traveled and enjoyed every day.
