Debbie was my daughter-in-law's Mom and she made me feel welcome into the family from the moment we meet. She had a great sense of humor, was a super hostess and loved her fur babies. Never having had a dog it was always an adventure to be around her Great Danes on a holiday!! I will miss her and I send my condolences to Gary and Jen and the entire Cooper family.
