Sitting next to Deb at Magid's in the backroom! Our chitchats about old restaurants, ice cream stores, other stores, and where they were at. Also about cookbooks. We talked about a lot of stuff.

To the entire Godwin Family...I have know you since childhood, grade school through high school and then some. My sadness and prayers to you all on the loss of a sister. God be with Deborah and all of you. Peace.

When I think of Deborah I think of wings. Maybe because of a conversation about spirits and ghosts. Maybe because I drew a picture of an alligator for her and put wings on it. Maybe because as one of her art and craft friends we had conversations about inspiration and execution of artwork. I think Deborah and I both shared some of the same frustrations in the artistic process. In execution I think we were both hampered somewhat by fear and procrastination. In inspiration I think we both struggled with the feeling "if I could just let go and fly free" I could do so much more. Those first steps can be so intimidating. I hope she is now flying free. My sympathy to all of you. The potluck group will miss her greatly.

What a wonderful obituary and I love the picture of Deb. Deb and I worked together at Frank Magid Assocciates. We were always exchanging recipes or as she would say conglomerations. Just shortly after she started there, she helped me gain confidence to enter an international candy contest. I had been doing well on the local level with cooking contests but always had points taken away for presentation, She really urged me to enter and it was her artistic presentation that help me place in the top 20 of 1500 contestants and bring home a nice check. To the Godwin family I send my sincere sympathy,

So sorry to hear of Deborah's death. I was a classmate of hers at Kirkwood in the Graphic Art class many moons ago... I loved her upbeat attitude on life and big smile! I'm praying that God will comfort your hearts as you adjust to life without her. Hang on to the good memories!

I was so sorry to hear about Deb's death. We haven't seen her in years but have so many great memories of her. She and Denny went to Kirkwood together and there was a group of us that got together often.

To the entire Godwin Family, We are so very sorry for the loss of Deb. It is never easy to lose a loved one as many of you already know. I love this photo of her & her big bright smile. Makes me think that is how Deb viewed & loved her life. As you go thru this difficult time, please know we are thinking of your family & wishing you well. With our sincere sympathy, friendship, & loving thoughts. Jim & Gail Miller


So sorry to hear this - I went to Regis with Debbie & always considered her a really nice friend during our high school years ... met up with her at one of the previous reunions several years ago, & it was fun to reminisce. "They are not gone - Just beyond our sight, beyond our touch, Waiting there, while we, here, share memories Of those we love so much." ~ J. Lorraine

I was in the class of 1969 from Regis, too & thought of Debbie recently as I sent invites to our 50th reunion. I have many fond memories from St Matt's and Campfire at the Godwin house...So very sorry for your loss of a daughter, sister, aunt & friend...
