Sincere sympathy to the family of the late Debbie (Nickerson) Cook. I have not seen Debbie for many years. We were friends when very young and worked for her Mom when she ran the Lobster House restaurant in Milton. Debbie was, even then, one of the most loving and cheerful people I ever had the pleasure of knowing. We had great times playing pranks on her Mom, Hilda. Rest In Peace, Debbie, you were one of the best.

Beth and Gina, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. Although I hadn't seen her in several years, I will always remember her warm, friendly smile, and our visits over coffee when we all lived in the same neighbourhood. Sending hugs to both of you!
