From: Andrea Williams
Relation: I worked closely with Deb at Mill Bay Pharmasave for 6 years.

To all of Deb’s wonderful family – I’m so sorry. I was shocked to see the newspaper announcement tonight, and then her obituary. I was a few days late reading the Wednesday paper so missed her Celebration of Life on Friday. I had the privilege of working with “Dr. Deb” as we all called her, for 6 years while I was a pharmacist at Mill Bay Pharmasave. She was not only a “supertech”, but beloved by staff and all of her patients. Her wit and compassion helped to get me through many a dark day. Debbie-doo, I love ya and your spirit will live on within me. Thankyou.
