I am so sad and sorry that such a special person with so many amazing gifts has been lost so early in life. It's hard to believe.
I have known Debbie since she first went to JILA in 1995. Even though she and I are practically the same age, she was a role model for me in many ways.
She has been an inspiration, and even though I haven't seen her often in recent years, she has also been a friend.
My deepest condolences to her family.
