  • I am so sorry to hear about Debbie’s passing.
    I met Debbie when I started working at Capriotti’s Basin Road, she would come in as a customer. Then I went to work at Newark and Debbie started coming in there as a customer. When I went to work at Hockessin, Debbie was there as a customer! And lastly I opened up Bear and Debbie came in as a customer and I hired her!
    Debbie was a reliable and trust worthy employee. I knew I could always count on her. She was a woman who worked hard for her family.

    I know Debbie is surely missed and her family is on my heart. Rest in peace Debbie, you surely do deserve it.
