Debbie will be so deeply missed at JILA and among her many friends. She was all at once a mentor, friend, and role model. Her effect on my life has been immeasurable. I will remember her calm poise, her smile, her capacity to be utterly absorbed in a physics experiment, and her love of family. Scientifically she never overcomplicated any subject, and she knew how to find an exciting problem that was at the same time possible in the laboratory. She was a unique force, and her wise advice will live on with her many students that she devoted so much to.
