Dan, Jennie and David, I am so very sorry to hear of Debbie's passing. Of all of the Zajas cousins, she was my favorite. She was so much like her Mom and Dad, my favorite Aunt and Uncle. I remember her smile and how proud she was to be Dan's wife and Jennie and David's mother. I wish you all peace and comfort knowing that she is watching over you and will be with you all again some day. Love, cousin Marianne

I used to play pinochle with Debbie back in the 70s & 80s. It was very sad to see her obituary Friday. My condolences to the Burtka family.
