Deb’s Gymnastics video … 1986

This is Andy, Deb’s husband.  I’m spending lots of time with my beloved Deb as she continues on her journey in this life. Some days are more intense than others with Deb experiencing lots of pain much of the time. We are living and loving and basking in all of your love and prayers. Our deepest gratitude back to all of you!

Deb’s Mom Mary Lou brought an old VHS tape from home recently of Deb doing gymnastics at age 16 in 1986. Check out the link below to see Deb in action; this is what Deb was doing before her yoga and dancing days. Enjoy!

    I saw Deb and Andy when she was receiving treatment at kaiser. Even at these tough times Deb took time to talk and ask me how I was. I admired her growth as a bike advocate and respected her style, which was often to watch and listen and then make a strong reply at the end of a topic.

    Deb visited our school years ago with her electric bike telling her story about her love of the bike and its role in society, including the story about the ah ha moment when her boyfriend crashed the car.

    She will be dearly missed. What a wonderful smile.

    Andy’s care and love was noticed by my wife Molly and I whenever we saw them This is a great loss, but also a life that was exemplary. Blessings and peace to her family.
