I had the pleasure of knowing Debbie as I am a retired Teacher Assistant from Glens Falls Schools. I remember Shea and Raschaud like it was yesterday. What great kids. A true reflection of their mother. I also volunteered with Debbie at Glens Falls Hospital where she was loved by all. Please know that you have my sincere condolences. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I am away for the winter so I wasn't able to attend the services.

I am truly sorry to hear of Debbie's passing. Debbie became my closest friend in elementary school and we loved listening to music and dancing. I remember when we put on a dance show in my basement. Everyone had to buy a ticket to get in. Not sure how much we made but we had a lot of fun and were so happy. And I loved her dance parties she had in her basement. It was the first time I ever slow danced. haha She always listened to the best music and introduced me to some really great artists. I'll always treasure her friendship. I attached a photo of our graduation day from Big Cross Street School. I'm sorry we didn't stay in touch but I ended up living in Florida and unfortunately lost touch. Words can't express how saddened I am and my heart aches for the family. My thoughts and prayers will be with her mom, Greg and family. With loving memories, Tina Drellos Friedman

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Debbie. Debbie and I shared many fond memories when I lived in Glen Falls during high school. She was a very kind person and a good friend. I'm very sorry that we didn't remain in touch over the years. Keeping her Mom, Greg, and family in prayer. Yvonne Richardson-Dixon , North Carolina
