To the family: Deb and I assisted my mother, Millie Peters, teaching Sunday School at the Nazarene Church in Mifflinburg. That was many years ago. What a great person.

Deb and I were in the same classes in school. For what ever reason, people could not remember I was Cindy Hoffman and she was Deb Hoffman. So when any one said Cindy or Deb, we both would look to see who they were calling. We had a lot of laughs trying to figure out who wanted who. I will miss your warm welcoming heart and smile.

We were friends with Deb & Bill for so many years, although recently we hadn't stayed in touch. We knew Deb, and Bill for that matter, to be the most caring, sincere and truly compassionate people you could ever want to have as friends. One thing we will never forget about that girl is that she always had a smile and an open heart for everyone. She will be missed, but not forgotten...........not a chance!

Jason and Bubba,
I was sad to hear of your mother’s passing. She fought the good fight and loved you and your families so very much. Her pain is over. May your memories give you comfort as you grieve. You all are in my prayers.
