My deepest sympathies to all of you in the loss of your sweet loved one.
Mr. DeBias was truly one of a kind and I really did enjoy getting to spend some time with him while working part-time at Arbutus last summer. He will be missed for his charm and whit.
May the memories you will cherish and share help you to find some piece and comfort.
