Memory/Sentiment: 

I had met with her when she came to give a colloquium in Madison, but I really fell in love with Debbie when I visited to give a colloquium at CU-Physics in 2013. Instead of the usual chat in front of a computer screen she brought me to her lab, and showed me how cold atoms literally fell to the floor of the chamber! We laughed that the atoms went "thud!" What an exciting woman she was! Here are two photos I took of her and the impressive lab she built. A huge loss!
