So heartbreaking to learn of Debbie’s passing. I worked with her for many years in the lab at Rowan. She was a wonderful person. We both shared the month of January for our birthday’s and we both loved unique jewelry. Every Christmas I couldn’t wait to see what new exciting piece of jewelry Ed would create for her. She will be missed.
