I was deeply saddened when I heard the tragic news a few days ago. I was one of those lucky people who have had the honor to collaborate with Debbie on physics problems in the field of ultracold atomic gases. Debbie's passing is a great loss of the entire ultracold quantum gas community and the physics world at large. My deepest sympathies are with Debbie's family.
Debbie, you still are and will always be with us, as we remember your smiles, your voices, your sense of humor, and most of all, your scientific accomplishments! May heaven be free of cancer.
